Atomic varieties of sets with relative inverses

  • 22 Accesses


The generalization of the construction of the lattice of varieties for partial algebras is used for sets with relative inverses. There are many quantum structures representable by sets with relative inverses (orthomodular lattices, orthoalgebras, D-posets, test spaces,...). Varieties covering the trivial variety are investigated for the case of closed (strongest type) subalgebras and closed homomorphisms. Some similar results for weaker types are given. The context with set representation problems is considered for the set-theoretic difference operations.
