## Simple Algebraic Structures

If you've taken some "modern algebra" in college or have
read up on algebraic structures, then you've probably heard
of things like **groups**, **rings**, and **fields**. But how about
**semigroups**, **groupoids**, **quasigroups**, **loops**,
and **monoids**?
Read on and you will learn all about them.
This document gives the definitions for well-known
algebraic structures simpler than a group.
No theorems are given since this is meant to be
just a dictionary of definitions.
The document is divided into the following sections:
