The characteristic n of a ring A is the unique non-negative integer with the property that the collection of integers m for which m1A = 0 in the ring is the set of multiples of n. The characteristic of a field is either a prime number p in which case the field has a smallest subfield isomorphic to Zp, the ring of integers modulo p, or else 0, in which case the field has a smallest subfield isomorphic to Q, the ring of rational numbers.
The characteristic of a ring is the smallest positive integer satisfying 1 = 0 if it exists and 0 otherwise. In particular ne=0 for all elements of the ring.
