Ockham algebras--the traditional generalization of a widely known and significant idea of a boolean algebra--has an unlimited volume of subvarieties, together with these of de Morgan, Stone, and Kleene algebras. This e-book, the 1st unified account of the topic, info the numerous vital breakthroughs that experience happened during this sector of lattice conception on account that Berman's pioneering paintings in 1977. specific emphasis is put on Priestley's topological duality, which contains ordered units and order-reversing maps. With its many illustrative examples and significant bibliography, Ockham Algebras is the ideal creation to the topic for graduate scholars and researchers learning algebra and lattice conception.
