- Abelian group [r]: A group in which the group operation is commutative.
^{[e]} - Algebraic number field [r]: A field extension of the rational numbers of finite degree; a principal object of study in algebraic number theory.
^{[e]} - Algebraic number [r]: A complex number that is a root of a polynomial with rational coefficients.

^{[e]} - An elementary proof that 22 over 7 exceeds π [r]:
*Add brief definition or description* - Associativity [r]: A property of an algebraic operation such as multiplication: a(bc) = (ab)c.
^{[e]} - Commutativity [r]: A property of a binary operation (such as addition or multiplication), that the two operands may be interchanged without affecting the result.
^{[e]} - Conductor of a number field [r]: Used in algebraic number theory; a modulus which determines the splitting of prime ideals.
^{[e]} - Connected space [r]: A topological space in which there is no non-trivial subset which is both open and closed.
^{[e]} - Coprime [r]: Integers, or more generally elements of a ring, which have no non-trivial common factor.
^{[e]} - Cubic equation [r]: A polynomial equation with of degree 3 (i.e.,
*x*^{3}+*px*^{2}+*qx*+r=0).^{[e]} - Denseness [r]: A set is dense in another set if the closure of the former set equals the latter set.
^{[e]} - E (mathematics) [r]: Constant real number equal to 2.71828 18284 59045 23536... that is the base of the natural logarithms.
^{[e]} - Equation (mathematics) [r]: A mathematical relationship between quantities stated to be equal, seen as a problem involving variables for which the solution is the set of values for which the equality holds.
^{[e]} - Exponent [r]: A mathematical notation used to represent the operation of exponentiation. It is usually written as a superscript on a number or variable, called the base. For example, in the expression, the base is 5 and the exponent is 4.
^{[e]} - Field (mathematics) [r]: An algebraic structure with operations generalising the familiar concepts of real number arithmetic.
^{[e]} - Field automorphism [r]: An invertible function from a field onto itself which respects the field operations of addition and multiplication.

^{[e]} - Group (mathematics) [r]: Set with a binary associative operation such that the operation admits an identity element and each element of the set has an inverse element for the operation.
^{[e]} - Heine–Borel theorem [r]: In Euclidean space of finite dimension with the usual topology, a subset is compact if and only if it is closed and bounded.
^{[e]} - Integer [r]: The positive natural numbers (1, 2, 3, …), their negatives (−1, −2, −3, ...) and the number zero.
