Funny, I thought about the same thing just yesterday evening. So at *least*
this discussion was very educative!
I'd just like to restate what I'm looking for, since I have the feeling that we
might meanwhile talk about different purposes:
In the following "category" is reserved for the Axiom/Aldor meaning of the
word. I do not know much about the mathematical thing.
I'd like to have a category Monoid and a category Ring and say that Integer is
a Ring.
If I ask *something* like Integer has Monoid(+) I'd like to get true.
If I ask *something* like Integer has Monoid(*) I'd like to get true.
For other operations I'd like to get false.
I'd like that Integer has an operation double, that uses the monoidSquare from
Monoid(+), an operation square that uses the monoidSquare from Monoid(*). I
imagine that I would be able to define it somehow like
double(a:%):% == monoidSquare(a)$Monoid(+)
I'd like that
if X has Monoid(+) then op x := monoidSquare(x)$X
uses the operation monoidSquare from Monoid(+), if X inherits from
Monoid(+). Here it should use the implementation "just before there are two
identical signatures". For example, there could be a category derived from
Monoid called AbelianMonoid, with a default for "monoidSquare". Then the above
line should use the default from AbelianMonoid, if Integer is an AbelianMonoid.
Similarly for X has Monoid(*).
I think it would be best if monoidSquare would be unavailable in Integer, if
not qualified like monoidSquare(x)$Monoid(+) or as above. I would be happy also
if only the above form "if X has Monoid(+)"... would work.
