Every quasitrivial n-ary semigroup is reducible to a semigroup ; Devillet, Jimmy in Algebra Universalis (in press) We show that every quasitrivial n-ary semigroup is reducible to a binary semigroup, and we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for such a reduction to be unique. These results are then refined in ... [more ▼] We show that every quasitrivial n-ary semigroup is reducible to a binary semigroup, and we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for such a reduction to be unique. These results are then refined in the case of symmetric n-ary semigroups. We also explicitly determine 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 following result has been shown recently in the form of a dichotomy: For every total clone $C$ on $\2 := \{0,1\}$, the set $\intervalD{C}$ of all partial clones on $\2$ whose total component is $C$, is either finite or of continuum cardinality. In this paper we show that the dichotomy holds, even if only strong partial clones are considered, i.e., partial clones which are closed under taking subfunctions: For every total clone $C$ on $\2$, the set $\intervalStr{C}$ of all strong partial clones on $\2$ whose total component is $C$, is either finite or of continuum cardinality.

[more ▼] A set of operations on A is shown to be the set of linear term operations of some algebra on A if and only if it is closed under permutation of variables, addition of inessential variables, and composition, and if it contains all projections. A Galois framework is introduced to describe the sets of operations that are closed under the operations mentioned above, not necessarily containing all projections. The dual objects of this Galois connection are systems of pointed multisets, and the Galois closed sets of dual objects are described accordingly. Moreover, the closure systems associated with this Galois connection are shown to be uncountable (even if the closed sets of operations are assumed to contain all projections).

Since this holds if and only if f belongs to no maximal partial clone ... [more ▼] A partial function f on a k-element set Ek is a partial Sheffer function if every partial function on Ek is definable in terms of f. Since this holds if and only if f belongs to no maximal partial clone on Ek, a characterization of partial Sheffer functions reduces to finding families of minimal coverings of maximal partial clones on Ek. We show that for each k ≥ 2, there exists a unique minimal covering.

[more ▼] For each clone C on a set A there is an associated equivalence relation analogous to Green's R-relation, which relates two operations on A if and only if each one is a substitution instance of the other using operations from C. We study the clones for which there are only finitely many relative R-classes.

[more ▼] Classes of functions of several variables on arbitrary nonempty domains that are closed under permutation of variables and addition of dummy variables are characterized by generalized constraints, and hereby Hellerstein's Galois theory of functions and generalized constraints is extended to infinite domains. Furthermore, classes of operations on arbitrary nonempty domains that are closed under permutation of variables, addition of dummy variables, and composition are characterized by clusters, and a Galois connection is established between operations and clusters.
