To each quasigroup Q there is a complete graph K_{3} with multiple edges corresponding to the elements of Q, with a class ** B** of selected triangles such that every two non-parallel edges belong to exactly one selected triangle. This is called a “biased expansion” of K

When Q is a subgroup of the multiplicative or additive group of a skew field F, the full frame or extended lift matroid (respectively) is representable in the projective plane over F. Thomas Zaslavsky and I are generalizing this standard theorem to arbitrary quasigroups, the role of F being taken by a planar ternary ring associated with a projective plane. There are complications; for instance, although the skew field associated with a Desarguesian plane is unique, there is not a unique planar ternary ring for a non-Desarguesian plane.
