Skew lattices

Abbreviation: SkLat

Definition

A skew lattice is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,\vee,\wedge\rangle,$ of type $\langle 2,2\rangle$ such that

$\langle A,\vee\rangle$ is a band,

$\langle A,\wedge\rangle$ is a band,

and the following absorption laws hold: $x\wedge (x\vee y)=x=x\vee (x\wedge y)$, $(x\vee y)\wedge y=y=(x\wedge y)\vee y$.

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be skew lattices. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism: $h(x \vee y)=h(x) \vee h(y)$, $h(x \wedge y)=h(x) \wedge h(y)$,
