The original multivalued algebra defined by Post in 1921  included the cyclization operation in its generating set. Up to now the algebra has not been used for the synthesis of ternary digital systems because of two shortcomings: no simple canonical forms are possible, and the cyclization is difficult to implement.
Cyclic algebra, cyclo-decomposition, cyclo-power operation, implementation, synthesis.
