The prominent role of multiplicative cohomology theories has led to a great deal of foundational research recently on ring spectra within the field of algebraic topology. This has given rise to significant new approaches to constructing categories of spectra and ring-like objects in them. These essays contain important new contributions to the theory of structured ring spectra as well as survey papers describing relationships between them.
