This chapter consists of a collection of open problems in commutative algebra. The collection covers a wide range of topics from both Noetherian and non-Noetherian ring theory and exhibits a variety of research approaches, including the use of homological algebra, ring theoretic methods, and star and semistar operation techniques. The problems were contributed by the authors and editors of this volume, as well as other researchers in the area.
