A new look at Ternary Boolean Algebras

  title={A new look at Ternary Boolean Algebras},
  author={J. P. Fatelo and Nelson Martins-Ferreira},
We present a new approach to ternary Boolean algebras in which negation is derived from the ternary operation. The key aspect is the replacement of complete commutativity by other axioms that do not require the ternary operation to be symmetric. 


Median algebras
A median algebra is a ternary algebra which satisfies all the identities true for the median operation in distributive lattices and all intrinsic semilattice orders on a median algebra are exhibited and characterized in several ways. Expand
A ternary operation in distributive lattices
I t can be easily seen that the graph [l , p. 9 ] , 1 of the Boolean algebra B of 2 elements (consisting of the vertices and edges of an n-cube) has 2(n\) "link-automorphisms," whereas B has onlyExpand
On distributive lattices and weakly Mal'tsev categories
We prove that a variety of lattices is weakly Mal’tsev if and only if it is a variety of distributive lattices.
Mobi algebra as an abstraction to the unit interval and its comparison to rings
Abstract We introduce a new algebraic structure, called mobi algebra, consisting of three constants and one ternary operation. The canonical example of a mobi algebra is the unit interval with theExpand
Trees, lattices, order, and betweenness
In this paper we consider postulates expressed in terms of "segments," "medians," and "betweenness." Characterizations are obtained for trees, lattices, and partially ordered sets. In general aExpand
