About the Authors
  • This introductory account of commutative algebra is aimed at students with a background only in basic algebra. Professor Sharp's book provides a good foundation from which the reader can proceed to more advanced works in commutative algebra or algebraic geometry. This new edition contains additional chapters on regular sequences and on Cohen-Macaulay rings.

    • Provides stepping stones to bridge gap from elementary prime factorization theory to the established books on commutative ring theory.
    • Straightforward introduction to commutative algebra (very important field, most books too hard)
    • Fully class tested and self-contained
    • Second edition of a popular text

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a very useful stepping-stone for students in their study of commutative algebra.' H. Mitsch, Universität Wien

    '… Sharp is an excellent guide, clearly aiming never to leave his readers floundering … This standard of care for his readers is maintained throughout the book … this is a superb guide to an attractive and important area of mathematics, and one from which I will derive pleasure as a retirement project. But it will never be an easy ride.' John Baylis, The Mathematical Gazette
