Group. Definition.

Groups. Categorical definition.

A group is a [something with a what?].

More specifically, a group is the set [of what of a something].

Recall that a groupoid is a category where every morphism is an isomorphism.

Now the usual approach.

Groups. Standard definition.

A group \( (G, \bullet) \) is a set \( G \) and a function \( \bullet : G \times G \to G \) (called a binary operation) where the following three properties are satisfied:


\( \bullet \) is associative,

[\[ ? \]]

There exists an identity element denoted \( e_G \) for \( \bullet \),

[\[ ? \]]
Every element of \( G \) has an inverse with respect to \( \bullet \),

[\[ ? \]]
