Ockham algebras

Abbreviation: OckA

Definition

An Ockham algebra is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,\vee ,0,\wedge ,1,'\rangle $ such that

$\langle A,\vee ,0,\wedge ,1\rangle $ is a bounded distributive lattice

$'$ is a dual endomorphism: $(x\wedge y)' =x'\vee y'$, $ (x\vee y)' =x'\wedge y'$, $ 0'=1$, $1'=0$

Morphisms

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

$h(x\vee y)=h(x)\vee h(y)$, $h(x\wedge y)=h(x)\wedge h(y)$, $h(x')=h(x)'$, $h(0)=0$, $h(1)=1$
