A Note on Distributive Triples
Keywords: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 (x∨y) ∧z = (x∧z) ∨ (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.
