Interior and closure operators on bounded commutative residuated \(\ell\)-monoids. (English) Zbl 1227.06014

Summary: Topological Boolean algebras are generalizations of topological spaces defined by means of topological closure and interior operators, respectively. In [Acta Univ. Palacki. Olomuc., Fac. Rerum Nat., Math. 39, 183–189 (2000; Zbl 1039.06005)] we generalized topological Boolean algebras to closure and interior operators of MV-algebras, which are an algebraic counterpart of the Łukasiewicz infinite-valued logic. In the present paper, these kinds of operators are extended to (and investigated in) the wide class of bounded commutative \(Rl\)-monoids that contains, e.g., the classes of BL-algebras (i.e., algebras of Hájek’s basic fuzzy logic) and Heyting algebras as proper subclasses.
