Skew lattices

Abbreviation: SkLat

Definition

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

$\langle A,\vee,\rangle$ is a band,

$\langle A,\wedge\rangle$ is a band,

and the following absorption laws hold: $x\wedge (x\vee y)=x=x\vee (x\wedge y)$, $(x\vee y)\wedge y=y=(x\wedge y)\vee y$.

Remark: This is a template. If you know something about this class, click on the ``Edit text of this page'' link at the bottom and fill out this page.

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.

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be skew lattices. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism: $h(x \vee y)=h(x) \vee h(y)$, $h(x \wedge y)=h(x) \wedge h(y)$,
