Abstract

We give a generating set of the generalized Reidemeister moves for oriented singular links. We then introduce an algebraic structure arising from the axiomatization of Reidemeister moves on oriented singular knots. We give some examples, including some non-isomorphic families of such structures over non-abelian groups. We show that the set of colorings of a singular knot by this new structure is an invariant of oriented singular knots and use it to distinguish some singular links.
