"An introduction to finite basis problems"

To get us started this term, I will describe some known instances of the finite basis problem in universal algebra, and one unknown instance that is currently bugging me: “Murskii + L'vov.” This will be an elementary lecture, intended as a warm-up for Justin’s lectures later this month.
