`DESCRIPTION`

- Describes a
*ring*and operations on its members. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_%28mathematics%29.

- class Ring r where
- (=+=) :: r -> r -> r
- (=*=) :: r -> r -> r
- additiveInverse :: r -> r
- multiplicativeIdentity :: r
- additiveIdentity :: r
- (=-=) :: r -> r -> r
- square :: r -> r

- product' :: Ring r => BisectionRatio -> MinLength -> [r] -> r
- sum' :: Ring r => BisectionRatio -> MinLength -> [r] -> r
- (=^) :: (Eq r, Integral power, Ring r, Show power) => r -> power -> r

# Type-classes

# Types

## Data.types

# Functions

product' :: Ring r => BisectionRatio -> MinLength -> [r] -> rSource

Returns the *product* of the list of *ring*-members.

sum' :: Ring r => BisectionRatio -> MinLength -> [r] -> rSource

Returns the *sum* of the list of *ring*-members.

## Operators

(=^) :: (Eq r, Integral power, Ring r, Show power) => r -> power -> rSource

- Raise a
*ring*-member to the specified positive integral power. - Exponentiation is implemented as a sequence of either squares of, or multiplications by, the
*ring*-member; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponentiation_by_squaring.
