Algebra extensionRing extension – The article appears to define "ring extension" first in the lead. The page Ring extension already existed as a separate article that was merged into Subring#Ring extensions by David Eppstein. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 23:22, 28 May 2016 (UTC) -- Relisting.

  • Comment from the creator: Both titles are reasonable. The reason I chose "algebra extension" instead of "ring extension" is because the latter seems more ambiguous: it can also mean a relationship between two rings (one subring of the other). The "extension" here in this article comes from group extension. "Algebra extension" seems not to suffer from this issue. But again both names would work so I'm not casting a vote. -- Taku (talk) 00:49, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
