A Brief History of Algebra with a Focus on the Distributive Law and Semiring Theory

  title={A Brief History of Algebra with a Focus on the Distributive Law and Semiring Theory},
  author={Peyman Nasehpour},
  journal={arXiv: History and Overview},
In this note, we investigate the history of algebra briefly. We particularly focus on the history of rings, semirings, and the distributive law. 
Semirings which have linearly ordered prime ideals.
In this paper, first, we investigate comparability of prime ideals. Then we introduce and characterize pseudo-valuation semirings. It is shown that prime ideals of divided semidomains and alsoExpand

On the Imbedding of One Semi-Group in Another, with Application to Semi-Rings
In other papers 1 a semi-group was defined as a set of elements closed ander an associative operation and for which the equivalence and the substitution postulates hold. tn the present paper we shallExpand
A semiring is an algebraic structure, consisting of a nonempty set R on which we have defined two operations, addition (usually denoted by +) and multiplication (usually denoted by · or byExpand

A Brief History of Algebraic Notation
This paper traces three major stages in the development of algebraic notation: rhetorical or prose, syncopated, and symbolic. The. development of algebra began in Babylonia and Egypt around 1700 BC.Expand
