A class of quasigroups solving a problem of ergodic theory. (English) Zbl 1038.20054

The paper presents the result that each finite left semicentral pointed quasigroup defines doubly stochastic matrices giving superergodic finite Markov chains, i.e. the entropy of the Markov chain at any time is independent of the initial state. The construction is closely related to Latin squares.
