    Groups, Rings, Fields

    I have a few questions about groups, rings, fields. This fits in Abstract Algebra, I believe. Which forum do I use to post these type of questions?

    What is your point? What makes you think that there has to be eight axioms for vector spaces?

    The additive structure of a vector space constitutes an abelian group. The action of the scalars constitutes a field. My example was to demonstrate that a vector space is a good example of abstract algebra.
