Examples of finite and infinite \(K\)-loops. (Beispiele endlicher und unendlicher \(K\)-Loops.) (German) Zbl 0788.20036
A \(K\)-loop is a certain generalization of a neardomain. Here examples are given of nontrivial \(K\)-loops including commutative and non-commutative as well as finite and infinite examples. Furthermore it is shown that under an additional condition \(K\)-loops and Bruck loops coincide.
