Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
Another example of a clone is the clone of a variety V, denoted by Clo V.
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
An algebra A in a variety V is the same as a clone homomorphism from Clo V to Clo S , where S is the underlying set of A. A clone V can be viewed as a category with one ob ject for each natural number.
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
Accordingly, to define an A-overalgebra, it suffices to define vA for all v , with the condition that the given definitions provide a well-defined clone homomorphism.
