- View SourceHi everyone. I have a couple of questions about terminology. First, which
is better to say, "Mal'cev variety," or "congruence-permutable variety?"
JDH Smith may have introduced the term "Mal'cev variety," I don't know.
Second, what do you call it if a type of algebras has a countable number of
terms? More generally, what do you call it if the cardinality of the set
of terms of a type is less that k, for some cardinal k? I have some rather
unimportant results which depend on this cardinal number, but I want to include
them in a writeup I am working on.
