- class sage.categories.rngs.Rngs(base_category)¶
The category of rngs.
An rng \((S, +, *)\) is similar to a ring but not necessarily unital. In other words, it is a combination of a commutative additive group \((S, +)\) and a multiplicative semigroup \((S, *)\), where \(*\) distributes over \(+\).
