FL-algebras

Abbreviation: FL

Definition

A full Lambek algebra, or FL-algebra, is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A, \vee, \wedge, \cdot, 1, \backslash, /, 0\rangle$ of type $\langle 2,0,2,0,2,1,2,2\rangle$ such that

$\langle A, \vee, \wedge, \cdot, 1, \backslash, /\rangle$ is a residuated lattice and

$0$ is an additional constant (can denote any element).

Morphisms

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

$h(x\vee y)=h(x)\vee h(y)$, $h(x\wedge y)=h(x)\wedge h(y)$, $h(x\cdot y)=h(x)\cdot h(y)$, $h(x\backslash y)=h(x)\backslash h(y)$, $h(x/y)=h(x)/h(y)$, $h(1)=1$, $h(0)=0$
