The communication describes the finite algebra for perception of rings in molecules. It is demonstrated that for an arbitrary spaning tree we may construct the so-called restricted set of rings, which is composed of all possible (dependent and/or independent) rings that are classified by making use of some required constrains as chemically important. The method makes possible the formulation of efficient algorithms how to exhaustive perceive the rings in molecules.
