Nominal sets were introduced by Gabbay/Pitts. Two different notions of equational logic over nominal sets were studied by Gabbay/Mathijssen and Clouston/Pitts. In this talk, we introduce the general notion of a based monad and show that finitary based monads give rise to equational theories in the standard sense of many-sorted set-based universal algebra. We further show that restricting these many-sorted equational theories to ‘uniform’ ones brings us back to the equational logics of Gabbay/Mathijssen and Clouston/Pitts. A benefit of our approach is that it allows to apply known results from universal algebra to algebras over nominal sets.
