Cancellation among finite unary algebras. (English) Zbl 0859.08003
L. Lovász showed [Acta Math. Acad. Sci. Hung. 18, 321-328 (1967; Zbl 0174.01401)] that every finite algebra having a one-element subalgebra is cancellable among finite algebras. The present authors prove the converse for finite unary algebras.
