COMMENTS

We consider rings in which multiplication is associative and has a unit, but where there is at least one pair of noncommuting elements.

EXAMPLE

a(n)=0 for n<=7 and a(8)=1, so all rings (with unit) of cardinality at most 7 are commutative, while the smallest noncommutative ring (with unit) has cardinality 8 and is unique up to isomorphism; it can be represented as the ring of uppertriangular matrices of size 2 over F_2.
