# acme-zero: The absorbing element of package dependencies

Cabal package dependencies form a commutative monoid with an absorbing element. They satisfy the following axioms:

- Associativity

For all dependencies `a`

, `b`

and `c`

,

(a , b) , c = a , (b , c)

In fact, the Cabal syntax does not even allow you to use the parentheses for this reason.

- Commutativity

For all dependencies `a`

and `b`

,

a , b = b , a

- Identity element

For all dependencies `a`

,

acme-one , a = a a , acme-one = a

Depending on `acme-one`

has no
additional effect.

- Absorbing element

For all dependencies `a`

,

acme-zero , a = acme-zero a , acme-zero = acme-zero

Depending on `acme-zero`

in
addition has the same effect as *only* depending on `acme-zero`

.
