Finite Bruck loops
"... Let X be a magma; that is X is a set together with a binary operation ◦ on X. For each x ∈ X we obtain maps R(x) and L(x) on X defined by R(x) : y ↦ → y ◦ x and L(x) : y ↦ → x ◦ y called right and left translation by x, respectively. A loop is a magma X with an identity 1 such that R(x) and L(x) are ..."

Let X be a magma; that is X is a set together with a binary operation ◦ on X. For each x ∈ X we obtain maps R(x) and L(x) on X defined by R(x) : y ↦ → y ◦ x and L(x) : y ↦ → x ◦ y called right and left translation by x, respectively. A loop is a magma X with an identity 1 such that R(x) and L(x) are permutations of X for all x ∈ X. In essence loops are groups without the associative axiom. See [Br, Pf] for further discussion of basic properties of loops. Certain classes of loops have received special attention: A loop X is a (right) Bol loop if it satisfies the (right) Bol identity (Bol): (Bol) or equivalently (Bol2) ((z ◦ x) ◦ y) ◦ x = z ◦ ((x ◦ y) ◦ x). R(x)R(y)R(x) = R((x ◦ y) ◦ x). for all x, y, z ∈ X. In a Bol loop, the subloop 〈x 〉 generated by x ∈ X is a group. Thus we can define x −1 and the order x  of x to be, respectively, the inverse of x and the

Gyrogroup theory [A.A. Ungar, Thomas precession: its underlying gyrogroup axioms and their use in hyperbolic geometry and relativistic physics, Found. Phys. 27 (1997), pp. 881951] enables the study of the algebra of Einstein's addition to be guided by analogies shared with the algebra of vector addition. The capability of gyrogroup theory to capture analogies is demonstrated in this article by exposing the Relativistic CompositeVelocity Reciprocity Principle. The breakdown of commutativity in the Einstein velocity addition # of relativistically admissible velocities seemingly gives rise to a corresponding breakdown of the relativistic compositevelocity reciprocity principle, since seemingly (i) on one hand the velocity reciprocal to the composite velocity u#v is (u#v) and (ii) on the other hand it is (v)#(u). But, (iii) (u#v) #= (v)#(u). We remove the confusion in (i), (ii) and (iii) by employing the gyrocommutative gyrogroup structure of Einstein's addition and, subsequ...

ABSTRACT. A powerful and novel way to study Einstein’s special theory of relativity and its underlying geometry, the hyperbolic geometry of Bolyai and Lobachevsky, by analogies with classical mechanics and its underlying Euclidean geometry is demonstrated. The demonstration sets the stage for the extension of the notion of barycentric coordinates in Euclidean geometry, first conceived by Möbius in 1827, into hyperbolic geometry. As an example for the application of hyperbolic barycentric coordinates, the hyperbolic midpoint of any hyperbolic segment, and the centroid and orthocenter of any hyperbolic triangle are determined.
