ABOUT F I N I T A S FINITAS is a unique finite algebra package designed for the construction and analysis of finite algebraic structures like groupoids, quasigroups, loops (which are not associative) as well as semigroups and groups (which are associative). FINITAS is a unique finite algebra package designed for the construction and analysis of finite algebraic structures like groupoids, quasigroups, loops (which are not associative) as well as semigroups and groups (which are associative). FINITAS is user friendly. You do not need to learn special syntax in order to use it. Construction and analysis of a finite system is based on the structure matrix method in which a system is defined in terms of its Cayley table. This is in marked contrast to most mathematical software in the market today. FINITAS is user friendly. You do not need to learn special syntax in order to use it.

THE NEED FOR FINITAS n The study of finite algebras (like quasigroups, loops, semigroups and groups) requires powerful computer algorithms for solving problems involving their construction and analysis. Most softwares available today can deal only with associative algebras like groups and related structures. For non-associative algebras like quasigroups and NAFIL loops, there appears to be no available softwares. Thus, there is a need for special softwares like FINITAS.

SOME APPLICATIONS FINITAS is an effective research tool in the field of finite algebras. It has proven to be a very powerful computational tool that has led to various significant discoveries in the development of the theory of Non-Associative Finite Invertible Loops (NAFIL) and also in the more general field of quasigroup theory.

TABLE EDITOR WINDOW The table editor window is the main work area of FINITAS. It is basically a blank Cayley table used for constructing a finite algebra.

HOW TO CONSTRUCT AN ALGEBRA A finite algebraic system consists of a set G of finite order n and a binary operation satisfying a set of Axioms. Such a system is usually denoted by (G, ). A finite algebraic system consists of a set G of finite order n and a binary operation satisfying a set of Axioms. Such a system is usually denoted by (G, ). n A finite algebra is completely determined by the n 2 possible binary products of its n elements arranged in the form of a multiplication table called a Cayley table. Thus, to construct a finite algebra we simply construct its Cayley table. n To do this, we first define the set G, the operation , and the Axioms it is required to satisfy. Then we define the n 2 binary products of its elements and tabulate them in the form of a Cayley table.

Most algebraic structures satisfy some or all of the following Axioms (or postulates): Most algebraic structures satisfy some or all of the following Axioms (or postulates): Let S = {1,2,3,…,n} be a set of order n and let be a binary operation on the set S. Let S = {1,2,3,…,n} be a set of order n and let be a binary operation on the set S. n A1 (Closure Axiom): For all a,b S, a b S. n A2 (Identity Axiom): There exists an element e S such that e a = a = a e for all a S. n A3 (Inverse Axiom): Given an identity e S, to each a S there is a unique a’ S such that a a’ = e = a’ a. n A4 (Unique Solution Axiom): For all all a,b S, there exists unique x,y S such that a x = b and y a = b. n A5 (Commutative Axiom): For all a,b S, a b = b a. n A6 (Associative Axiom): For all a,b S, a (b c) = (a b) c. Algebraic Axioms

10
Construction Procedure First, decide what kind of an algebraic system (G, ) you want to construct. This is determined primarily by the Axioms it is required to satisfy. Next, select your mode of construction: MANUAL or SEMI-AUTO. The MANUAL mode is the default. If you choose this, you can enter your data directly into the blank Cayley table in the Table Editor window. If you choose the SEMI-AUTO mode, first open the Construct menu and select the item Parameters to bring out the Parameters dialog box. Here, you must indicate the order n of the system and the Axioms it is required to satisfy.

11
PARAMETERS DIALOG BOX for construction under the SEMI-AUTO mode. This box is used to indicate the order n and the Axioms of an algebra under construction. To select a given Axiom, you must activate it.

12
Sample Construction Let us construct an abelian loop (G, ) of order n = 6 using the SEMI-AUTO mode. Here, we take G to be the set G = {1,2,3,4,5,6}. The subset {1,2,3} must form a subsystem of order m = 3. Let us construct an abelian loop (G, ) of order n = 6 using the SEMI-AUTO mode. Here, we take G to be the set G = {1,2,3,4,5,6}. The subset {1,2,3} must form a subsystem of order m = 3. n In the Parameters dialog box, we enter 6 for order n, activate all of the Axioms: A1, A3, A4, A5, and enter the numeral 1 for A2 to serve as the identity element. See Figure G-P. n Then click the Ok button to automatically enter the numerals 1,2,3,4,5,6 (in that order, as the elements of the set G), as row and column headings. These will also appear as the entries in the first row and first column of the table as shown in Figure G-1. n Enter the elements of the subset {1,2,3} as shown in Figure G-2 so that they form a subsystem. n Finally, enter the other numerals until the whole table is completely filled up as shown in Figure G-3 and G-4. Each entry must satisfy the chosen Axioms in order to complete the desired table.

13
SETTINGS OF THE PARAMETERS DIALOG BOX (G, ) to be constructed. Note that the element 1 has been chosen as the identity element and that A1, A3, A4, and A5 have been activated. Figure G-P. This box shows the settings for the system (G, ) to be constructed. Note that the element 1 has been chosen as the identity element and that A1, A3, A4, and A5 have been activated.

14
Characteristic Patterns In filling out the Cayley table S(G), the pattern (or position) of entries is determined by the Axioms the system satisfies. These are automatically satisfied if they are activated in the Parameters dialog box under the SEMI-AUTO MODE. In filling out the Cayley table S(G), the pattern (or position) of entries is determined by the Axioms the system satisfies. These are automatically satisfied if they are activated in the Parameters dialog box under the SEMI-AUTO MODE. n P(A1) Closure Pattern: All entries g ij = g i g j of S(G) are elements of the set G and there is exactly one entry at each intersection of a given row i and a given column j of S(G). n P(A2) Identity Pattern: In S(G), the entries in row e are identical to the entries in column e, that is, g ek = g k = g ke for all k = 1,…,n, where g e is the identity element of G. n P(A3) Inverse Pattern: The identity element g e G appears exactly once in each row and in each column of S(G) such that g ab = g e = g ba. n P(A4) Unique Solution Pattern: Each element g b G appears exactly once in each row x and in each column y of S(G), that is, g xa = g b = g ka iff k = x and g ay = g b = g ak iff k = y. n P(A5) Commutative Pattern: The entries of S(G) are such that g ab = g ba for all a,b = 1,…,n; S(G) is symmetric.

20
HOW TO DISPLAY RESULTS OF ANALYSIS To display the results of analyses done on (G, ), go to the Display menu and choose System properties of (G, ), next Special properties of (G, ), then Subsystems of (G, ), etc.
