Given an extension R/S of commutative rings and a prime ideal P of R, it follows that the intersection, say p, of P with S is a prime ideal of S. In this case we say that P lies over p. The situation is more complicated when R is not commutative.
- A field extension is a special case of ring extension. Polynomial ring R[x] is an extension of R.
