Let denote an -algebra, so that is a Vector Space over and

where is vector multiplication which is assumed to be Bilinear. Now define

where . is said to be tame if is a finite union of Subspaces of . A 2-D 0-Associative algebra is tame, but a 4-D 4-Associative algebra and a 3-D 1-Associative algebra need not be tame. It is conjectured that a 3-D 2-Associative algebra is tame, and proven that a 3-D 3-Associative algebra is tame if it possesses a multiplicative Identity Element.
