# Minimal Axioms for a Ring #

This file defines constructors to define a Ring or CommRing structure on a Type, while proving a minimum number of equalities.

## Main Definitions #

• Ring.ofMinimalAxioms: Define a Ring structure on a Type by proving a minimized set of axioms
• CommRing.ofMinimalAxioms: Define a CommRing structure on a Type by proving a minimized set of axioms

Define a Ring structure on a Type by proving a minimized set of axioms. Note that this uses the default definitions for npow, nsmul, zsmul and sub See note [reducible non-instances].
