We want to start by recalling some elementary topics in ring theory; we basically focus on local rings, since Galois rings, the “main subject” of our work, are a particular class of such rings. We will review some definitions and provide clarifying examples. This is useful for the sake of establishing a common language, fixing, once and for all, notation such as would appear in many undergraduate Algebra texts whose contents we assume the reader is familiar with.
