The opposite of a group G with multiplication μ is a group with the same underlying set as G and multiplication given by x y ↦ μ y x.


op-Group : {l : Level}  Group l  Group l
pr1 (pr1 (op-Group G)) = set-Group G
pr1 (pr2 (pr1 (op-Group G))) x y = mul-Group G y x
pr2 (pr2 (pr1 (op-Group G))) x y z = inv (associative-mul-Group G z y x)
pr1 (pr1 (pr2 (op-Group G))) = unit-Group G
pr1 (pr2 (pr1 (pr2 (op-Group G)))) = right-unit-law-mul-Group G
pr2 (pr2 (pr1 (pr2 (op-Group G)))) = left-unit-law-mul-Group G
pr1 (pr2 (pr2 (op-Group G))) = inv-Group G
pr1 (pr2 (pr2 (pr2 (op-Group G)))) = right-inverse-law-mul-Group G
pr2 (pr2 (pr2 (pr2 (op-Group G)))) = left-inverse-law-mul-Group G


The opposite group of G is isomorphic to G

module _
  {l : Level} (G : Group l)

  equiv-inv-Group : equiv-Group G (op-Group G)
  pr1 equiv-inv-Group = equiv-equiv-inv-Group G
  pr2 equiv-inv-Group = distributive-inv-mul-Group G

  iso-inv-Group : type-iso-Group G (op-Group G)
  iso-inv-Group = iso-equiv-Group G (op-Group G) equiv-inv-Group
