Valuations and distance functions on directed multilattices. (English) Zbl 0889.06002
The author characterizes distance functions corresponding to valuations, isotone and positive valuations on directed multilattices. As an application, there is proved that congruence relations on a directed modular multilattice of locally finite length form a Boolean algebra.
