Quasitrivial semigroups: characterizations and enumerations ; Devillet, Jimmy ; Marichal, Jean-Luc in Semigroup Forum (in press) We investigate the class of quasitrivial semigroups and provide various characterizations of the subclass of quasitrivial and commutative semigroups as well as the subclass of quasitrivial and order ... [more ▼] We investigate the class of quasitrivial semigroups and provide various characterizations of the subclass of quasitrivial and commutative semigroups as well as the subclass of quasitrivial and order-preserving semigroups. We also determine explicitly the sizes of these classes when the semigroups are defined on finite sets. As a byproduct of these enumerations, we obtain several new integer sequences.

[more ▼] The invariance identity involving three operations D_{f,g} : X x X -> X of the form D_{f,g} (x,y) = (f o g)^{-1} (f (x) + g (y)) , is proposed. The connections of these operations with means is investigated. The question when the invariance equality admits three means leads to a com- posite functional equation.

[more ▼] We investigate the class of binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set. Here the quasitriviality property (also known as conservativeness) means that the operation always outputs one of its input values. We also examine the special situations where the operations are commutative and nondecreasing, in which cases the operations reduce to discrete uninorms (which are discrete fuzzy connectives playing an important role in fuzzy logic). Interestingly, associative and quasitrivial operations that are nondecreasing are characterized in terms of total and weak orderings through the so-called single-peakedness property introduced in social choice theory by Duncan Black. We also address and solve a number of enumeration issues: we count the number of binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set as well as the number of those operations that are commutative and/or nondecreasing.

In this paper we provide characterizations of the class of (i,j)-selective operations. We also investigate some subclasses by adding algebraic properties such as associativity or bisymmetry.

[more ▼] We investigate the class of binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set. Here quasitriviality (also known as conserva-tiveness) means that the operation always outputs one of its input values. We also examine the special situations where the operations are commutative and nondecreasing. In the latter case, these operations reduce to discrete uninorms, which are discrete fuzzy connectives that play an important role in fuzzy logic. As we will see nondecreasing, associative and quasitrivial operations are chara-cterized in terms of total and weak orderings through the so-called single-peakedness property introduced in social choice theory by Duncan Black. This will enable visual interpretaions of the above mentioned algebraic properties. Motivated by these results, we will also address a number of counting issues: we enumerate all binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set as well as of those operations that are commutative, are nondecreasing, have neutral and/or annihilator elements. As we will see, these considerations lead to several, previously unknown, integer sequences.

More precisely we first show that the idempotent discrete uninorms are exactly those operations that are conservative, symmetric, and nondecreasing. Then we show that, in this characterization, symmetry can be replaced with both bisymmetry and existence of a neutral element.
