Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Monoid Rings.

Let $R$ be a ring with unity.

Let $\struct {G, *}$ be a monoid.

Let $R^{\paren G}$ be the free $R$-module on $G$.

Let $\set {e_g: g \in G}$ be its canonical basis.

By Multilinear Mapping from Free Modules is Determined by Bases, there exists a unique bilinear map:

$\circ: R^{\paren G} \times R^{\paren G} \to R^{\paren G}$

which satisfies:

$e_g \circ e_h = e_{g \mathop * h}$

Then $R \sqbrk G = \struct {R^{\paren G}, +, \circ}$ is called the monoid ring of $G$ over $R$.
