''Algebraic theories, brought as an idea within the Sixties, were a basic step in the direction of a express view of common algebra. in addition, they've got proved very worthwhile in a variety of parts of arithmetic and laptop technology. This conscientiously constructed booklet offers a scientific advent to algebra in line with algebraic theories that's obtainable to either graduate scholars and researchers. it's going to facilitate Read more...

Example text

Homomorphisms of algebras are represented by natural transformations. We now introduce a more general definition of an algebraic theory and its algebras. See Chapter 11 for Lawvere’s original concept of a one-sorted theory and Chapter 14 for S-sorted theories. In the present chapter, we also study basic concepts such as limits of algebras and representable algebras, and we introduce some of the main examples of algebraic categories. 1 Definition An algebraic theory is a small category T with finite products.

This proves that e is surjective. 18 Corollary Every algebraic category is exact. In fact, since Set is exact, so is Set T . 3. 19 Definition We say that colimits in a category A distribute over products if given diagrams Di : Di → A (i ∈ I ), and forming the diagram Di → A, Ddi = D: i∈I Di di , i∈I the canonical morphism colim D → colim Di i∈I is an isomorphism. If all Di are of a certain type, we say that colimits of that type distribute over products. The concept of distributing over finite products is defined analogously but I is required to be finite.

18. 2. The category of posets does not have this property: take an arbitrary poset B and an equivalence relation R on the underlying set of B equipped with the discrete ordering; the two projections R ⇒ B form an equivalence relation that is seldom a kernel pair. 16 Definition A category is called exact if it has 1. 2. 3. 4. finite limits coequalizers of kernel pairs effective equivalence relations and regular epimorphisms stable under pullback; that is, in every pullback e f A G B  C  G D g e if e is a regular epimorphism, then so is e .
