# Talk:Divisor (ring theory)

From Citizendium

## Disambiguation needed

Okay, I started this page after reading the page on divisors and seeing that there was no mention of divisibility in general commutative rings. However, after doing this, I just realized that we need a separate page to discuss the notion of divisors in the sense of algebraic geometry (i.e., naively, divisors on curves, or more generally, Weil divisors, Cartier divisors, etc.). I am at a loss as to what to call the pages addressing these various issues. Perhaps this one should be renamed, to be more descriptive? How about something like "Divisor (ring theory)"?Barry R.
