An associative ring is just realized or built using reals or complex; finite or infinite by defining two binary operations on it. But on the contrary when we want to define or study or even introduce a non-associative ring we need two separate algebraic structures say a commutative ring with 1 (or a field) together with a loop or a groupoid or a vector space or a linear algebra. The two non-associative well-known algebras viz. Lie algebras and Jordan algebras are mainly built using a vector space over a field satisfying special identities called the Jacobi identity and Jordan identity respectively. Study of these algebras started as early as 1940s. Hence the study of non-associative algebras or even non-associative rings boils down to the study of properties of vector spaces or linear algebras over fields.
