Free Moufang loops and alternative algebras.

Authors: N. I. Sandu


It is proved that any free Moufang loop can be embedded in to a loop of invertible elements of some alternative algebra. Using this embedding it is quite simple to prove the well-known result: if three elements of Moufang loop are bound by the associative law, then they generate an associative subloop. It is also proved that the intersection of the terms of the lower central series of a free Moufang loop is the identity and that a finitely generated free Moufang loop is Hopfian.
