 PlanetMath: local ring
The name comes from the fact that these rings are important in the study of the local behavior of varieties and manifolds: the ring of function germs at a point is always local.
Rings of formal power series over a field are local, even in several variables.
In that case, the ring also has a unique maximal right ideal, and the two ideals coincide with the ring's Jacobson radical, which in this case consists precisely of the non-units in the ring.

  Ring homomorphism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In abstract algebra, a ring homomorphism is a function between two rings which respects the operations of addition and multiplication.
If R[X] denotes the ring of all polynomials in the variable X with coefficients in the real numbers R, and C denotes the complex numbers, then the function f : R[X] → C defined by f(p) = p(i) (substitute the imaginary unit i for the variable X in the polynomial p) is a surjective ring homomorphism.
However, surjective ring homomorphisms are vastly different from epimorphisms in the category of rings.

In mathematics, ring theory is the study of rings, algebraic structures in which addition and multiplication are defined and have similar properties to those familiar from the integers.
The study of rings originated from the theory of polynomial rings and the theory of algebraic integers.
A module over a ring is an abelian group that the ring acts on as a ring of endomorphisms, very much akin to the way fields (integral domains in which every non-zero element is invertible) act on vector spaces.

Rings over which all full matrices are non-zerodivisors The problem remains that Theorem 3 is not readily applicable even in the commutative case, and it would be useful to have a characterization as convenient as the Bedoya-Lewin result.
Recall that for a ring R the right annihilator of a subset X of R' is the set of all y c 'R such that xy = 0 for all x c X. The left annihilator of a subset Y of 'R is defined dually.
Notice that the ring R (2, 3, 2) has all the good module theoretic properties that could be desired; since every full matrix is regular, the flat modules are all spacial, and it is known that the left and right global dimension is 2.

 Field (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A structure which satisfies all the properties of a field except possibly for commutativity, is today called a division ring or sometimes a skew field, but also non-commutative field is still widely used.
A field is a commutative ring (F, +, *) such that 0 does not equal 1 and all elements of F except 0 have a multiplicative inverse.
If F is a field, and p(X) is an irreducible polynomial in the polynomial ring F[X], then the quotient F[X]/ is a field with a subfield isomorphic to F.

The ring S-1A is called a localization of A. This terminology arises from consideration of rings of continuous functions, with values, say, in a field.
If A is a ring of functions on a space X and if Y (X is a subspace, which could be a single point, let S = S(Y) (A denote the subset of functions which have no zeros on Y. It is clear that S is a multiplicative set.
In this situation, the localization S-1A is often denoted A(P), and referred to as the localization of A at the prime P. The ring A(P) is a local ring, that is, a ring with a unique maximal ideal.

 Introduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Univariate polynomial rings may be defined over any ring R. Let us denote the univariate polynomial ring in indeterminate x over the coefficient ring R by P=R[x].
A ring homomorphism taking a polynomial ring R[x] as its domain requires 2 pieces of information, namely, a map (homomorphism) telling how to map the coefficient ring R, together with the image of the indeterminate x.
The coefficient ring map may be omitted, in which case the coefficients are mapped into S by the unitary homomorphism sending 1_R to 1_S.
