Hi

1) would $[\ , ,]$ have better spacing?

2) $[ , , ]$ is anti-commutative not anti-associative. Further this

term should not be emphasized as this entry does not define this

term. (It is currently undefined on PM.)

3) $\displaystyle [a_1,a_2,a_3]=\operatorname{sgn}(\pi)[a_{\pi(1)},b_{\pi(2)},a_{\pi(3)}],$

4) also mention that sgn is the sign of \pi:

## properties

I don't think you need to take out the

properties from this entry. After all, the

properties are about the associator. THerefore,

it would seem logical to have them (also) here.

## Re: properties

The problem is that the anti-commutative properties are really meant for alternative algebras. They are not general properties of the associator. I happened to put them in the wrong place.
