COMMENTS

A quandle is abelian / medial (both names are being used) if it satisfies the identity (XY)(UV) = (XU)(YV). Not to be confused with a commutative quandle (A179010).

EXTENSIONS

Added comment and link to indicate that magmas satisfying the identity
(XY)(UV) = (XU)(YV) in some circles are said to be "medial" as opposed to the term "abelian" used by the author of the sequence.
