Liber Mathematicae

Liber Mathematicae is a web-based documentation and collaboration project for Mathematics.

The CRing Project

The CRing Project has been founded by Akhil Matthew and is a collaborative, open source textbook on commutative algebra and related topics. It is still work in progress and will be merged into Liber Mathematicae. If you want to contribute or have comments, please send a message to
