Does constructive negation use something like the Grothendiek-group or
does the similarity not go that far? Anyway, thanks for the pointer,
I'll look into it.

I hope to get away with a purely algebraic construction as the
Groethendiek-group is an abelian group for every underlying commutative
monoid. I intend to conclude from the commutative monoid laws that the
inversion laws hold by construction without developing a separate
