Interassociativity on a free commutative semigroup

  • A. B. GorbatkovEmail author


We describe all interassociates of a free commutative semigroup. Each interassociate of a free commutative semigroup is proved to be a variant of it or coincides with that semigroup. Conditions are found for the isomorphy of two variants of a free commutative semigroup.
