Some properties of complete congruence lattices

  • R. Giacobazzi
  • F. Ranzato


For a complete lattice C, we consider the problem of establishing when the complete lattice of complete congruence relations on C is a complete sublattice of the complete lattices of join- or meet-complete congruence relations on C. We first argue that this problem is not trivial, and then we show that it admits an affirmative answer whenever C is continuous for the join case and, dually, co-continuous for the meet case. As a consequence, we prove that if C is continuous then each principal filter generated by a continuous complete congruence on C is pseudocomplemented.

Key words and phrases: Complete lattice, complete congruence, join- and meet-complete congruence, closure operator, pseudocomplement, continuous complete lattice, meet-continuous complete lattice
