# AbelianMonoidRing(R, E)ΒΆ

- R: Join(SemiRng, AbelianMonoid)
- E: OrderedAbelianMonoid

Abelian monoid ring elements (not necessarily of finite support) of this ring are of the form formal SUM (r_i * e_i) where the r_i are coefficents and the e_i, elements of the ordered abelian monoid, are thought of as exponents or monomials. The monomials commute with each other, but in general do not commute with the coefficients (which themselves may or may not be commutative). See FiniteAbelianMonoidRing for the case of finite support. A useful common model for polynomials and power series. Conceptually at least, only the non-zero terms are ever operated on.
