Modern algebra and polynomial ideals

F. S. Macaulaya1

The aim of the following exposition is to give some idea of the scope of modern algebra in the light of the theory of ideals. It consists for the most part of definitions, examples, and the statement of theorems without proof; but the selection is severely restricted even in idealtheory. Thus no reference is made to the highly important matter of homomorphic, or multiply isomorphic, correspondence and its consequences.
