Hochster and Barger were the first to introduce notions of grade for non-Noetherian rings. Their work laid the foundation for Alfonsi’s work which unified and generalized these earlier definitions. The various notions of grade have played an important role in the development of the theory of coherent rings. This paper looks at the historical development of non-Noetherian grade, as well as its applications.
