# nLab EKMM

The book Rings, modules, and algebras in stable homotopy theory by Elmendorf, Kriz, May, and Mandell was the first to give a symmetric monoidal model category of spectra (called S-modules), in which $A_\infty$ and $E_\infty$-ring spectra could be defined as ordinary monoids and modules.

The book is sometimes referred to as EKMM for short, after the initials of its authors.
