The term center is used in various contexts in abstract algebra to denote the set of all those elements that commute with all other elements. More specifically: Abstract algebra is the field of mathematics concerned with the study of algebraic structures such as groups, rings and fields. ...

The center of a ringR is the subset of R consisting of all those elements x of R such that xr = rx for all r in R. The center is a commutativesubring of R, so R is an algebra over its center.

The center of an algebraA consists of all those elements x of A such that xa = ax for all a in A. See also: central simple algebra.

The center of a Lie algebraL consists of all those elements x in L such that [x,a] = 0 for all a in L. This is an ideal of the Lie algebra L.

To avoid designating some one ring node as special (and thereby making ring operation depend on that node's continued good health) some algorithm is required whereby all active repeaters can quickly and simply agree upon the need for initialization and recovery, and not fall all over one another trying to accomplish it.

ring network were compared by measuring the board area required to hold the implementation of the network control logic up to but not including speed-matching buffers.

In a token-controlled ring, an error may destroy the token at the worst possible time, or when a station nearing a deadline finally receives the token the message it sends may be damaged by an error, and retransmission may be needed.
