Ring Theory
This is a learning
resource page for Ring Theory, for 2nd/3rd year undergraduates.
It is independent of any particular module or programme.
The material here may thus be of use to any
student
studying Ring Theory (but do check your syllabus).
In particular the Leeds module
Math2033 Rings, Polynomials and Fields is relevant.
Study Notes

Study notes are
in here*
* this set of notes is functional,
but minor upgrades may appear from time to time  watch this space.
 The notes linked about assume you know the fundamentals of
first year undergraduate mathematics, such as:
 what a set is (see e.g.
Erich Kamke's book )
 what a relation is (see e.g.
here ).
 what a real number is (in some sense! perhaps as a
complete ordered field  see e.g. the prologue to
Kropholler's Analysis from Scratch).
 ...and how to get help if none of these resources work for you!
(e.g. ask someone).
Exercises
Exercises are integrated in the notes.
For MATH2033, others are available in tutorial classes.
(Please go to tutorials; do not ask for copies elsewhere!)
