Ralph McKenzie. 01 .   If H is a decidable variety of finite groups and W is a locally finite variety of finite semigroups with computable free objects, then H ‾ ∨ W is decidable. The results of  show that there is a locally finite variety W of finite semigroups, generated by a single finite aperiodic semigroup, and a decidable variety H of finite metabelian. The first part of this course will deal with the structure theory developed by Hobby and McKenzie for finite algebraic structures. The main source for this part of the course will be the book "The Structure of Finite Algebras" by David Hobby and Ralph McKenzie and published in the Contemporary Mathematics Series of the American Mathematical.

Some properties of finitely decidable varieties. By Matthew Valeriote. Abstract. Abstract: \u22Let V be a variety whose class of finite members has a decidable first-order theory. We prove that each finite member A of V satisfies the (3,1) and (3,2) transfer principles, and that the minimal sets of prime quotients of type 2 or 3 in A must have. which is generated by a finite algebra can be represented in this way. These results allow us in  to exhibit complete varieties, even locally finite ones, that fail to have the amalgamation property. This provides a negative answer to a question of Fajtlowicz .

Locally finite monoids in finitely based varieties when Σ is regular, so that every identity in Σ is a semigroup identity. Now let Σ be the set consisting of every deletion of every identity in Σ is a finite regular system of semigroup identities that is deletion closed such that LMΣ = follows from Lemma that LMΣ is a variety if and only if LSΣ is a variety; as. left M{sets is abelian. A variety of R{modules is locally nite if and only if R is nite while a variety of M{sets is locally nite if and only if M is nite. These two types of examples are fundamental, since it is shown in  that the polynomial structure of any nite abelian algebra is locally like that of . In universal algebra, a variety of algebras means the class of all algebraic structures of a given signature satisfying a given set of identities. One calls a variety locally finite if every finitely generated algebra has finite cardinality, or equivalently, if every finitely generated free algebra has finite cardinality.. The variety of Boolean algebras constitutes a famous example. Degree of a finite morphism. Let f: X → Y be a finite surjective morphism between algebraic varieties over a field , by definition, the degree of f is the degree of the finite field extension of the function field k(X) over f * k(Y).By generic freeness, there is some nonempty open subset U in Y such that the restriction of the structure sheaf O X to f −1 (U) is free as O Y | U-module.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders. Abstract. In this chapter and the next, we characterize the decidable, strongly Abelian, locally finite varieties. In this chapter, we reduce the task to the seemingly more modest one of determining those locally finite varieties of multi-sorted unary algebras that are decidable.

In this chapter, we assume that V is a structured locally finite variety. It follows from the work of Parts I and II that V is the join of a strongly Abelian variety V 1, an affine variety V 2, and a discriminator variety V 3. (See Definition and Theoremsand ) In this chapter, we shall prove that V is the product of these three varieties.

There are several equivalent ways to formulate the result (see. Cite this chapter as: McKenzie R., Valeriote M. () The Abelian subvariety.

A variety is a class of universal algebras de-fined by a set of equations. Such a class is said to be locally finite if every finitely generated member of the class is finite. Let be a variety whose class of finite members has a decidable first-order theory.

We prove that each finite member A of satisfies the (3, 1) and (3, 2) transfer principles, and that the minimal sets of prime quotients of type 2 or 3 in A must have empty tails. The first result has already been used by J.

The Finite Decidability Problem Let Vbe a variety (usually locally nite) in a nite language. We say Vis decidable if its rst-order theory is, and nitely decidable if the theory of V n is decidable. Decidable and nitely decidable varieties are rare and structurally constrained.

For example, Fact I If A has any congruence covers of the lattice or. A theory T is finitely decidable if the theory T fin of the class of finite models of T is decidable.

There is some positive correlation between the decidability and the finite decidability. For instance, for locally finite strongly abelian varieties of finite type, those two concepts coincide [MV89]. Thus, locally finite Abelian varieties have definable principal congruences, enjoy the congruence extension property, and satisfy the RS-conjecture.

1 Introduction Abelian algebras have played an. A long-standing question is the classification of finite rings R such that the theory TR of all (left) R-modules is decidable. Solving it will complete the classification due to R.

McKenzie and M. Valeriote of locally finite decidable varieties [The structure of decidable locally finite varieties. For a variety of finite groups H, let H ‾ denote the variety of finite semigroups all of whose subgroups lie in give a characterization of the subsets of a finite semigroup that are pointlike with respect to H ‾.Our characterization is effective whenever H has a decidable membership problem.

In particular, the separation problem for H ‾-languages is decidable for any decidable. such a variety is decidable iff it is the varietal product of three decidable locally finite varieties of very special kinds: strongly abelian, affine, and discrimina-tor.

Through the work of Valeriote [19, 15] it is completely understood which locally finite strongly abelian varieties are decidable. Though the same is.

Campbell and L. Sowden, The University of British Columbia Press,pp.; G. The problem of characterizing finitely decidable varieties was raised in var-ious places such as [2, 4, 17].

Recently in the late s, Idziak was able to completely characterize the finite decidability for those varieties which are con-gruence distributive, finitely generated and of finite type [].

This paper is. The Structure of Finite Algebras (Contemporary Mathematics) This book begins with a straightforward and complete development of basic tame congruence theory, a topic that offers a wide variety of investigations.

It then moves beyond the consideration of individual algebras to a study of locally finite varieties. It is shown that given any finite system of monoid identities, it is decidable if the class of locally finite monoids that satisfy the system is a var We use cookies to enhance your experience on our continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

The main discovery presented here is that the lattice of congruences of a finite algebra is deeply connected to the structure of that algebra. The theory reveals a sharp division of locally finite varieties of algebras into six interesting new families, each of which is characterized by the behavior of congruences in the s: 1.Keywords: Decidable locally finite variety, Abelian variety, Transfer principle, Tame congruence theory, Congruence modularity.

1 Introduction One of the key steps in obtaining a structure theorem for decidable locally finite varieties was the identification of the transfer principles and the proof that they must hold in decidable varieties.
