## Partial groupoids

Abbreviation: **Pargoid**

### Definition

A ** partial groupoid** is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,\cdot\rangle$, where

$\cdot$ is a ** partial binary operation**, i.e., $\cdot: A\times A\to A+\{*\}$.

Remark: The domain of definition of $\cdot$ is Dom$(\cdot)=\{\langle x,y\rangle\in A^2 \mid x\cdot y\ne *\}$

##### Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be partial groupoids. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism: if $x\cdot y\ne *$ then $h(x \cdot y)=h(x) \cdot h(y)$

### Examples

Example 1: The empty partial binary operation on any set $A$ gives a partial groupoid.
