Abstract  Cited by 20 (5 self)  Add to MetaCartAbstract. We study structure theorems for the conjugacy closed (CC) loops, a specific variety of Gloops (loops isomorphic to all their loop isotopes). These theorems give a description all such loops of small order. For example, if p and q are primes, p<q,andq − 1 is not divisible by p, then the only CCloop of order pq is the cyclic group of order pq. Foranyprimeq>2, there is exactly one nongroup CCloop in order 2q, and there are exactly three in order q 2. We also derive a number of equations valid in all CCloops. By contrast, every equation valid in all Gloops is valid in all loops. 1.

The right alternative law implies the left alternative law in loop rings of characteristic other than 2. We also exhibit a loop which fails to be a right Bol loop, even though its characteristic 2 loop rings are right alternative. 1 Introduction Throughout this paper, (L; \Delta) always denotes a loop, with identity element e, and (R; +; \Delta) always denotes an associative commutative ring, with identity element 1 6= 0. Then, RL denotes the loop ring constructed from R and L. Elements of RL are represented by finite formal sums of the form P i!n a i x i , where the x i are elements of L and the a i are elements of R. The sum and product operations on RL are defined in the obvious way. Then, 1e is the identity element of RL. See the survey by Goodaire and Milies [2] for more details, background information, and references to the earlier literature. Note that L is embedded into RL via the map x 7! 1x; we usually write the element 1x simply as x. It is now trivial to verify: Remar...

Abstract. The decomposition theorem for torsion abelian groups holds analogously for torsion commutative diassociative loops. With this theorem in mind, we investigate commutative diassociative loops satisfying the additional condition (trivially satisfied in the abelian group case) that all nth powers are central, for a fixed n. For n = 2, we get precisely commutative C loops. For n = 3, a prominent variety is that of commutative Moufang loops. Many analogies between commutative C and Moufang loops have been noted in the literature, often obtained by interchanging the role of the primes 2 and 3. We show that the correct encompassing variety for these two classes of loops is the variety of commutative RIF loops. In particular, when Q is a commutative RIF loop: all squares in Q are Moufang elements, all cubes are C elements, Moufang elements of Q form a normal subloop M0(Q) such that Q/M0(Q) is a C loop of exponent 2 (a Steiner loop), C elements of L form a normal subloop C0(Q) such that Q/C0(Q) is a Moufang loop of exponent 3. Since squares (resp. cubes) are central in commutative C (resp. Moufang) loops, it follows that Q modulo its center is of exponent 6. Returning to the decomposition theorem, we find that every torsion, commutative RIF loop is a direct product of a C 2loop, a Moufang 3loop, and an abelian group with each element of order prime to 6. We also discuss the definition of Moufang elements, and the quasigroups associated with commutative RIF loops. 1.
Quasigroups, Loops, and Associative Laws

We study weakenings of associativity which imply that a quasigroup is a loop. In particular, these weakenings include each of Fenyves' "Extra" loop axioms. x1. Introduction. A quasigroup is a system (G; \Delta) such that G is a nonempty set and \Delta is a binary function on G satisfying 8xz9!y(xy = z) and 8yz9!x(xy = z). A loop is a quasigroup which has an identity element, 1, satisfying 8x(x1 = 1x = x). See the books [1, 2, 9] for background and references to earlier literature. A group is, by definition, an associative loop. As is wellknown, every quasigroup satisfying the associative law has an identity element, and is hence a group. In this paper we consider weakenings of associativity which also imply that a quasigroup is a loop, even though many of these weakenings do not imply the full associative law. For example, consider the four Moufang identities: M1 : (x(yz))x = (xy)(zx) M2 : (xz)(yx) = x((zy)x) N1 : ((xy)z)y = x(y(zy)) N2 : ((yz)y)x = y(z(yx)) As usual, equations wri...

Each of the Moufang identities in a quasigroup implies that the quasigroup is a loop. x1. Introduction. A quasigroup is a system (G; \Delta) such that G is a nonempty set and \Delta is a binary function on G satisfying 8xz9!y(xy = z) and 8yz9!x(xy = z). A loop is a quasigroup which has an identity element, 1, satisfying 8x(x1 = 1x = x). Quasigroups are studied not only in algebra, but also in combinatorics, where they are identified with Latin squares, and in projective geometry, where they are identified with 3webs. For details and references to earlier literature, see the books [1, 2]. By results of Bol and Bruck (see [1], p. 115), the following four identities: M1 : 8xyz [ (x(yz))x = (xy)(zx) ] M2 : 8xyz [ (xz)(yx) = x((zy)x) ] N1 : 8xyz [ ((xy)z)y = x(y(zy)) ] N2 : 8xyz [ ((yz)y)x = y(z(yx)) ] are equivalent in loops; a loop satisfying these identities is called a Moufang loop. The purpose of this note is to show that every quasigroup satisfying any one of these identities is a ...
