From the author’s introduction: Modern umbral calculus is steadily approaching maturity, as applications develop in several areas of mathematics. To maximize this utility it is important to work in the most general (as opposed to the most abstract) setting. Our purpose here is to popularize elements of umbral calculus which have already been translated into the language of universal algebra, and to introduce new and related constructions which are motivated by emerging applications.
