Distributive lattice-ordered semigroups

Abbreviation: DLOS


A distributive lattice ordered semigroup is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,\vee,\wedge,\cdot\rangle$ of type $\langle 2,2,2\rangle$ such that

$\langle A,\vee,\wedge\rangle$ is a distributive lattice

$\langle A,\cdot\rangle$ is a semigroup

$\cdot$ distributes over $\vee$: $x\cdot(y\vee z)=(x\cdot y)\vee (x\cdot z)$ and $(x\vee y)\cdot z=(x\cdot z)\vee (y\cdot z)$

It is not unusual to give several (equivalent) definitions. Ideally, one of the definitions would give an irredundant axiomatization that does not refer to other classes.


Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be distributive lattice-ordered semigroups. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism: $h(x\vee y)=h(x) \vee h(y)$, $h(x\wedge y)=h(x) \wedge h(y)$, $h(x\cdot y)=h(x) \cdot h(y)$
