Notes on the Variety of Ternary Algebras
Abstract: In this work we review the class T of ternary algebras introduced by J. A. Brzozowski and C. J. Serger in [1]. We determine properties of the congruence lattice of a ternary algebra A. The most important result refers to the construction of the free ternary algebra on a poset. In particular, we describe the poset of the join irreducible elements of the free ternary algebra with two free generators.
