Abstract: Several new formulations of the notion of cylindric algebra are presented. The class $ C{A_\alpha }$ of all cylindric algebras of degree $ \alpha $ is shown to be definitionally equivalent to a class of algebras in which only substitutions (together with the Boolean $ + , \cdot $, and $ - $) are taken to be primitive operations. Then $ C{A_\alpha }$ is shown to be definitionally equivalent to an equational class of algebras in which only substitutions and their conjugates (together with $ + , \cdot $, and $ - $) are taken to be primitive operations.
