Definition

Let $\struct {G, \oplus}$ be a magma.

Let $n \ge 1$ be a natural number.

Let $G^n$ be the $n$th cartesian power of $G$.


The $n$-ary operation induced by $\oplus$ is the $n$-ary operation $\oplus_n: G^n \to G$ defined as:

$\map {\oplus_n} f = \displaystyle \bigoplus_{i \mathop = 1}^n \map f i$

where $\bigoplus$ denotes indexed iteration of $f$ from $1$ to $n$.


Induced nullary operation

Let $\struct {G, \oplus}$ be a unital magma with identity $e$.

The $0$-ary operation induced by $\oplus$ is the nullary operation equal to the element $e$.
