In the last time some papers were devoted to the study of the con- nections between binary block codes and BCK-algebras. In this paper, we try to generalize these results to n-ary block codes, providing an algorithm which allows us to construct a BCK-algebra from a given n-ary block code.
Hypergroups are generalizations of groups. If this binary operation is taken to be multivalued, then we arrive at a hypergroup. The motivation for generalization of the notion of group resulted naturally from various problems in non-commutative algebra, another motivation for such an investigation came from geometry. In various branches of mathematics we… (More)
