We show that polymorphism-homogeneity is also equivalent to the property that algebraic sets (i.e., solution sets of systems of equations) are exactly those sets of tuples that are closed under the centralizer clone of the algebra. Furthermore, we prove that the aforementioned properties hold if and only if the algebra is injective in the category of its finite subpowers. We also consider two additional conditions: a stronger variant for polymorphism-homogeneity and for injectivity, and we describe explicitly the finite semilattices, lattices, Abelian groups and monounary algebras satisfying any one of these three conditions.","Comment: 18 pages, 1 figure"],"keywords":["Mathematics - Logic","Mathematics - Rings and Algebras","03C07 (Primary) 03C10, 08A02, 08A35, 08A40, 08B30, 14A99 (Secondary)"]}
