## Boolean groups

Abbreviation: **BGrp**

### Definition

A ** Boolean group** is a monoid $\mathbf{M}=\langle M, \cdot, e\rangle$ such that

every element has order $2$: $x\cdot x=e$.

##### Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{M}$ and $\mathbf{N}$ be Boolean groups. A morphism from $\mathbf{M}$ to $\mathbf{N}$ is a function $h:M\rightarrow N$ that is a homomorphism:

$h(x\cdot y)=h(x)\cdot h(y)$, $h(e)=e$

### Examples

Example 1: $\langle \{0,1\},+ ,0\rangle$, the two-element group with addition-mod-2. This algebra generates the variety of Boolean groups.
