**Basis (universal Algebra)**

In universal algebra a **basis** is a structure inside of some (universal) algebras, which are called *free algebras*. It generates all algebra elements from its own elements by the algebra operations in an independent manner. It also represents the endomorphisms of an algebra by certain indexings of algebra elements, which can correspond to the usual matrices when the free algebra is a vector space.

### Famous quotes containing the word basis:

“My dream is that as the years go by and the world knows more and more of America, it ... will turn to America for those moral inspirations that lie at the *basis* of all freedom ... that America will come into the full light of the day when all shall know that she puts human rights above all other rights, and that her flag is the flag not only of America but of humanity.”

—Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
