The first motivation to introduce such structures a algebraic was problem in It turned out later that some of them dendriform algebraic K-theory.

Let us first describe the motivation from The algebraic K-theory. al- braic of a are not like the but K-groups ring periodic topological K-groups, of of some them shows the existence of a computation periodicity phenomenon. For instance the 0 are of 4 for > 2. The groups K, (Z) Q periodic period n are constructed on the linear GL.
