Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's vean long time since I did this, but I would try to prove the axioms for the elements of H* to be a abelian group: Closure: For all a, b in H*, the result of the operation a • b is also in H*. Associativity For all a, b and c in H*, the equation (a • b) • c = a • (b • c) holds. Identity element There exists an element e in H*, such that for all elements a in H*, the equation e • a = a • e = a holds. Inverse element For each a in H*, there exists an element b in H* such that a • b = b • a = e, where e is the identity element. CommutativityFor all a, b in H*, a • b = b • a.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then PQ^1 =\[(xy ^{1})((xy ^{1}))^{1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0=\[(xy ^{1})(x ^{1}y)=(xx ^{1})(yy ^{1})\]
