(related to Definition: Strings (words) over an Alphabet)
From an algebraic point of view, the set $\Sigma^*$ of all strings under the alphabet $\Sigma$, together with the concatenation as its binary operation $\cdot: \Sigma^* \times \Sigma^* \mapsto \Sigma^*$, establishes the structure of a monoid, denoted by $(\Sigma^*,\cdot)$.
