Knopfmacher  introduced the idea of an additive arithmetic semigroup as a general setting for an algebraic analogue of number theory. Within his framework, Zhang  showed that the asymptotic distribution of the values taken by additive functions closely resembles that found in classical number theory, in as much as there are direct analogues of the Erdos–Wintner and Kubilius Main Theorems. In this paper, we use probabilistic arguments to show that similar theorems, and their functional counterparts, can be proved in a much wider class of decomposable combinatorial structures.
