Medial groupoids

Definition

A medial groupoid is a structure $\mathbf{G}=\langle G,\cdot\rangle$, where $\cdot $ is an infix binary operation such that

$\cdot$ mediates: $(x\cdot y)\cdot(z\cdot w)=(x\cdot z)\cdot (y\cdot w)$

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{G}$ and $\mathbf{H}$ be medial groupoids. A morphism from $\mathbf{G}$ to $\mathbf{H}$ is a function $h:G\rightarrow H$ that is a homomorphism:

$h(xy)=h(x)h(y)$

Examples

Example 1: $\langle S,*\rangle$, where $\langle S,+,\cdot\rangle$ is any commutative semiring, $a,b\in S$, and $x*y=a\cdot x+b\cdot y$.
