Abstract: The set theoretic generalizations of algebras have been
introduced in the 1960s to give a set theoretic interpretation of usual
algebraic structures. The shift in perspective from algebra to set
theory is that in set theory the focus is on the collection of possible
algebras and sub-algebras on specific cardinals rather than on
particular algebraic structures. The study of collections of algebras
and sub-algebras has generated many well-known problems in combinatorial
set theory (e.g., Chang’s conjecture and the existence of small singular
Jonsson cardinals).
