m-zeroids

Abbreviation: MZrd

Definition

An m-zeroid is a algebra $\mathbf{A}=\langle A, \wedge, \vee, +, 0, -\rangle$ such that

$\langle A, +\rangle$ is a commutative semigroup

$\langle A, \wedge, \vee\rangle$ is a lattice

$-x=x$

$x + 0 = 0$

$x + -x = 0$

$x\le y\iff 0=-x+y$

$x + (y\vee z) = (x+y)\vee(x+z)$

Morphisms

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

$h(x+y)=h(x)+h(y)$, $h(x\wedge y)=h(x)\wedge h(y)$, $h(x\vee y)=h(x)\vee h(y)$, $h(-x)=-h(x)$, $h(0)=0$

Examples

Example 1:

Basic results

All subdirectly irreducible algebras are linearly ordered.

The lattice is always bounded, with top element $0$.

The bottom element $-0$ is the identity of $+$.

The dual operation $x\cdot y=-(-y+-x)$ is the fusion of a commutative integral involutive semilinear residuated lattice. In fact, m-zeroids are precisely the duals of these residuated lattices, which are also known as involutive IMTL algebras.
