Introductory account of commutative algebra, aimed at students with a background in basic algebra.

Written as a bridge for undergraduate students from topics in ring theory to commutative algebra, this monograph by Sharp (U, of Sheffield) introduces such concepts as prime and maximal ideals, rings of fractions, commutative Noetherian rings, and dimension theory; and applications to field theory. Includes the preface to the 1990 edition (reprinted with corrections in 1994). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
