Affine Completeness of Generalised Dihedral Groups
In this paper we study affine completeness of generalised dihedral
groups. We give a formula for the number of unary compatible
functions on these groups, and we characterise for every $k \in~\N$
the $k$affine complete generalised dihedral groups. We find that
the direct product of a $1$affine complete group with itself need not
be $1$affine complete. Finally, we give an example of a nonabelian
solvable affine complete group. For nilpotent groups we find a
strong necessary condition for $2$affine completeness.

A characterization of varieties with a difference term, II: neutral $=$ meet semidistributive
We provide more characterizations of varieties with a weak
difference term and of neutral
varieties. We prove that a variety has a (weak)
difference term (is neutral) with respect to the TCcommutator
iff it has a (weak) difference term
(is neutral) with respect to the linear commutator.
We show that a variety \v\ is congruence meet semidistributive i{f}f
\v\ is neutral,
i{f}f $M_3$ is not a sublattice of \con a, for ${\bf A} \in \v$, i{f}f
there is a positive integer $n$ such that $\v \smc
\a(\b\o\g)\leq\alpha \beta_n$.
