Magma

 IsDistributive
 test whether a finite magma is distributive Calling Sequence IsDistributive( m ) Parameters

 m - Array representing the Cayley table of a finite magma Description

 • The IsDistributive command returns true if the given magma satisfies the  left and right distributive laws X(YZ) = (XY)(XZ) and (XY)Z = (XZ)(YZ). It returns false otherwise. Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Magma}\right):$
 > $m≔⟨⟨⟨1|1|1⟩,⟨1|2|2⟩,⟨1|3|3⟩⟩⟩$
 ${m}{≔}\left[\begin{array}{ccc}{1}& {1}& {1}\\ {1}& {2}& {2}\\ {1}& {3}& {3}\end{array}\right]$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{IsDistributive}\left(m\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (2)
 > $m≔⟨⟨⟨1|2|3⟩,⟨2|3|3⟩,⟨3|1|2⟩⟩⟩$
 ${m}{≔}\left[\begin{array}{ccc}{1}& {2}& {3}\\ {2}& {3}& {3}\\ {3}& {1}& {2}\end{array}\right]$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{IsDistributive}\left(m\right)$
 ${\mathrm{false}}$ (4) Compatibility

 • The Magma[IsDistributive] command was introduced in Maple 15.
