order (of a ring)

The order of a ring R is the order (http://planetmath.org/OrderGroup) of its additive groupMathworldPlanetmath, i.e. (http://planetmath.org/Ie) the number of elements of R. The order of R can be denoted as |R|. If |R| is finite, then R is said to be a finite ring.

This definition of order is not necessarily standard. Please see http://planetmath.org/?op=getobj&from=corrections&id=12149this correction and the posts attached to it for more details.
