# Jordan implies power-associative

From Groupprops

This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two non-associative ring properties. That is, it states that every non-associative ring satisfying the first non-associative ring property (i.e., Jordan ring) must also satisfy the second non-associative ring property (i.e., power-associative ring)

## Statement

Any Jordan ring is a power-associative ring. In other words, if is a commutative possibly non-associative ring satisfying the following

## Related facts

The analogous statement is not necessarily true for Jordan magmas, i.e., a Jordan magma need not be a power-associative magma. However, it is true that Jordan implies powers up to the fifth are well-defined even in the magma context.

## Facts used

- Jordan implies powers up to the fifth are well-defined: Actually, we only need the fourth power to be well-defined.
- Equivalence of definitions of power-associative ring: This in particular implies that a non-associative ring is power-associative iff fourth powers are well-defined in the ring.

## Proof

The proof combines facts (1) and (2).
