commutative groupoid; associative triples
Summary:
Let $G = G(\cdot)$ be a commutative groupoid such that $\{(a,b,c) \in G^3$; $a\cdot bc \ne ab\cdot c\} = \{(a,b,c) \in G^3$; $a=b\ne c$ or $a \ne b =c \}$. Then $G$ is determined uniquely up to isomorphism and if it is finite, then $\operatorname{card}(G) = 2^i$ for an integer $i\ge 0$.
