comment Functions over $R$ such that $f(xy) = f(x)f(y)$
Oh yes, I forgot all about the fact that $(xy)^n = x^n y^n$. So I guess the answer to the first question is "yes", but my second question remains.

Thanks Zev for fixing up the $ signs. How do you get them to not make it go into LaTeX mode?

comment Is there a name for $[0,1]$?
I'd imagine the 'unit interval' refers to the set [0,1], but you wouldn't say that the number 0.3 is a "unit interval number" in the same way that you might say that 2/3 is a "rational number". It's not entirely clear from the question but I think it's asking for a term to describe any number in the set, not to describe the set itself.

comment Interesting properties of ternary relations?
Okay. That is interesting but it's not the type of property that I was after -- I want properties expressible in first order logic (+ identity).
