In this chapter we will introduce the rings that will play a rôle in this book which is similar to the rôle played in algebraic geometry by ordinary commutative rings with 1. These are the so-called C -rings. The general notion of C -ring as such does not occur in classical analysis and differential topology. However, the main examples of C -rings occupy a central position in singularity theory and related subjects.
