Brouwerian algebras

Abbreviation: BrA

Definition

A Brouwerian algebra is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A, \vee, \wedge, 1, \rightarrow\rangle$ such that

$\langle A, \vee, \wedge, 1\rangle$ is a distributive lattice with top

$\rightarrow$ gives the residual of $\wedge$: $x\wedge y\leq z\Longleftrightarrow y\leq x\rightarrow z$

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be Brouwerian algebras. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism:

$h(x\vee y)=h(x)\vee h(y)$, $h(x\wedge y)=h(x)\wedge h(y)$, $h(1)=1$, $h(x\rightarrow y)=h(x)\rightarrow h(y)$

Definition

A Brouwerian algebra is a BL-algebra $\mathbf{A}=\langle A, \vee, \wedge, 1, \cdot, \rightarrow\rangle$ such that

$x\wedge y=x\cdot y$
