Gyrogroups are generalized groups modelled on the Einstein groupoid of all relativistically admissible velocities with their Einstein’s velocity addition as a binary operation. Einstein’s gyrogroup fails to form a group since it is nonassociative. The breakdown of associativity in the Einstein addition does not result in loss of mathematical regularity owing to the presence of the relativistic effect known as the Thomas precession which, by abstraction, becomes an automorphism called the Thomas gyration. The Thomas gyration turns out to be the missing link that gives rise to analogies shared by gyrogroups and groups. In particular, it gives rise to the gyroassociative and the gyrocommuttive laws that Einstein’s addition possesses, in full analogy with the associative and the commutative laws that vector addition possesses in a vector space. The existence of striking analogies shared by gyrogroups

A new form of the Hyperbolic Pythagorean Theorem, which has a striking intuitive appeal and offers a strong contrast to its standard form, is presented. It expresses the square of the hyperbolic length of the hypotenuse of a hyperbolic right angled triangle as the "Einstein sum" of the squares of the hyperbolic lengths of the other two sides, Fig. 1, thus completing the long path from Pythagoras to Einstein.

"... Introduction Let (L; \Phi) be a loop, i.e., L is a set with a binary operation \Phi such that for all a; b 2 L the equations a \Phi x = b and y \Phi a = b have unique solutions x; y 2 L, and such that there exists 0 2 L with a \Phi 0 = 0 \Phi a = a. The condition a \Phi (b \Phi x) = (a \Phi b) \Ph ..."

Introduction Let (L; \Phi) be a loop, i.e., L is a set with a binary operation \Phi such that for all a; b 2 L the equations a \Phi x = b and y \Phi a = b have unique solutions x; y 2 L, and such that there exists 0 2 L with a \Phi 0 = 0 \Phi a = a. The condition a \Phi (b \Phi x) = (a \Phi b) \Phi ffi a;b (x) for a; b; x 2 L then clearly defines a bijective map ffi a;b : L ! L. Following [17] we use the phrase precessionmaps to denote these maps.

"... Abstract. On the unit sphere S in a real Hilbert space H, we derive a binary operation ⊙ such that (S, ⊙) is a powerassociative Kikkawa left loop with twosided identity e0, i.e., it has the left inverse, automorphic inverse, and Al properties. The operation ⊙ is compatible with the symmetric space ..."

Abstract. On the unit sphere S in a real Hilbert space H, we derive a binary operation ⊙ such that (S, ⊙) is a powerassociative Kikkawa left loop with twosided identity e0, i.e., it has the left inverse, automorphic inverse, and Al properties. The operation ⊙ is compatible with the symmetric space structure of S. (S, ⊙) is not a loop, and the right translations which fail to be injective are easily characterized. (S, ⊙) satisfies the left power alternative and left Bol identities “almost everywhere ” but not everywhere. Left translations are everywhere analytic; right translations are analytic except at −e0 where they have a nonremovable discontinuity. The orthogonal group O(H) is a semidirect product of (S, ⊙) with its automorphism group. The left loop structure of (S, ⊙) gives some insight into spherical geometry.
