Hyper-operations in effect algebras



The structure of effect algebras is studied from the perspective of hyper-operations. It is shown that Riesz congruences are compatible with the hyper-meet operation and the hyper-join operation in effect algebras with the maximality property. Moreover, we prove that the quotient of an effect algebra E with the maximality property by a Riesz ideal \(I\ne E\) has the maximality property.
