Imposing the distributivity requirement between addition and multiplication leads someone to define a generalized product [[direct sum].sub.q] which alongside the addition [[direct sum].sub.q], on the set R form a field [R.sub.q] = (R, [[direct sum].sub.q], [[cross product].sub.q]).
The minimal GBPs are obtained after application of the distributivity law and the rule of idempotency.
A semiring R is an algebraic structure (R, +, *) consisting of a nonempty set R together with two binary operations + and * on R such that (R, +) and (R, *) are semigroups connected by distributivity, that is, a(b + c) = ab + ac and (b + c)a = ba + ca, for all a, b, c [member of] R [1,2].
