The Lebesgue decomposition of measures on orthomodular posets. (English) Zbl 0617.46065
This is an investigation of the Lebesgue decomposition of positive measures on an orthomodular poset L. Conditions for subcones of positive measures on L are obtained under which the requirement of a positive Lebesgue decomposition is equivalent to L being a Boolean lattice. This result is used to give a measure-theoretic characterization of associative JBW-algebras amongst all JBW-algebras. Permanence properties of this decomposition are studied.
