Maximal ideals in the near ring of polynomials modulo 2

J. L. Brenner

Vol. 52 (1974), No. 2, 595–600
Abstract

A near ring (or semiring) is a structure with addition and composition. Under addition, the structure is a commutative group. Composition is associative and distributive on one side: (p + q) r = pr + q r. An example is the set of polynomials with coefficients from the ring of integers [or indeed from any ring]; composition is ordinary composition of polynomials. Another example is the set of endomorphisms of an abelian group.
