Sample text

For any element a o f L there follows a r\a = a by L7, and therefore, by ( 1 ) a <^a. Moreover, the relation is antisym­ metric. By its definition, for any pair o f elements a, b o f L, a <* b and b < a hold simultaneously if, and only if, a r\ b = a and b r\ a = = b whence by L3, a = a r \ b = b r \ a = b. e. a r\b = a and b r\ c = b. Then, applying l v a r \ $ = {a r\b) r\ c = a r\ (b r\c) = a r\b = a which implies a < ,c . In the course o f the proof, we have only made use o f the properties o f L r‘.

By the just proved L7 and 1-8, a = b implies a r\b = a = a kj b. Conversely, if a r\b = a kj b, then by the axioms L3 and L4 we also have b r\ a = b w a, and thus, by the axioms L6, L2 and by the statement L8 o f the theorem a= a kj {a r\b) = a (a b) = {a \j a) kj b= a b b = bKj(br\a) = b\^{b\^a) = {b^jb)\ua = b \ j a and hence by L4, a = b. Let us now present some examples of lattices from diverse branches o f mathematics. Example 7. As in Example 3, let denote the set of all sub­ sets o f M (the void set included).

Finally, L2 is also satisfied: if one o f x, y , z equals a, we have (x w y) kj z = a = x w w (y w z) and, by L4, already proved, ( & u 5 ) w & = 5 u (6 u 6). Consequently, Lv L2, L4 — L6 are satisfied in S. On the contrary, L3 is not satisfied, since the table o f operations o f r\ is not symmetrical with respect to the principal diagonal (a b = a, but b r\ a = b). 2. Demonstration of the independence of L5. Let us consider again the set {a, 6 }, and let us define thereupon a two-operation algebra T in the following way: The “ meet” o f any two elements o f T is equal to b, and w is defined in the same way as in the preceding S.
