Distributive triple, dually distributive triple, covering diamond


Even if a lattice L is not distributive, it is still possible that for particular elements x, y, z L it holds (xy) z = (xz) (y z). If this is the case, we say that the triple (x, y, z) is distributive. In this note we provide some sufficient conditions for the distributivity of a given triple.
