"The First Steps in Universal Algebra; A Generalization of Objects That We Take For Granted"

This talk will be an introduction to some basic concepts in universal algebra, including congruences, general homomorphisms, lattices, and the congruence lattice of an algebra. We will start with the general definition of an algebra and explore some examples. Given time, we will discuss products and subdirect embeddings, which are among the most important ideas in universal algebra.
