Elements of Clon V are equivalence classes of n-ary term operations of the algebras in V, where terms t and t′ are equivalent if t(x) = t′ (x) is an identity of V.
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
Let A be a set, and ω an n-ary operation on A.
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
Q to denote that A-operation, regardless of whether v is an n-ary basic operation, n-ary term operation, or n-ary element of Clo V.
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
If A is a set, and S an A-set, then we can define CloA S , the clone of A-operations on S to be, for each n, the set of pairs hω , ω ′i where ω is an n-ary operation on A, and ω ′ is an n-ary A-operation on S over ω .
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
If M ∈ V ′ [A, V], and u is an n-ary basic operation, term operation, or element of Clo V ′ , we will denote by au, or occasionally by auM , that operation on the algebra aM .
