10 July 2000, talk on lattice expansions by Mai Gehrke
Title: Canonical extensions of distributive lattice expansions
Speaker: Mai Gehrke, New Mexico State University
Location: to be announced
Date: July 10, 15.15 hrs.

Abstract:
Distributive lattices abstractly capture the notion of a collection of sets equipped with the binary operations of union and intersection. It is of interest to be able to represent algebras for which just part of the structure is that of a distributive lattice in this way as well. Such algebras we call distributive lattice expansions and we explore a tool called the canonical extension which often allows us to access the benefits of the set representation for these expanded structures.
