Some authors also use this term for semi-rings that do not possess a multiplicative identity, and some do not even require a 0: compare: Semiring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Semiring -- from Wolfram MathWorld If we require the distributivity just be one-sided, but still have a 0, which in addition is an "absorbing element" (0.a = 0, or a.0 = 0, depending on "which sidedness we have") we have a near-semiring. Many of these structure arise as certain kinds of functions, or by considering structures based on the natural numbers. Thanks from Olinguito
