Varieties of Algebras with no Nontrivial Finite Members

  • Andrzej Kisielewicz

Abstract

New examples of varieties with no nontrivial finite members given in this paper improve some earlier results or answer some open questions in this area. In particular, a generalization of Marczewski’s problem presented at the International Algebra Conference in Lisbon, June 88, is shown to have a solution in the negative.
