Separation algebras

Abbreviation: SepAlg

Definition

A separation algebra is a generalized separation algebra such that

$\cdot$ is commutative: $x\cdot y = y\cdot x$.

I.e., a separation algebra is a cancellative commutative partial monoid.

Morphisms

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