existence of more distributive Boolean lattices

Are there a Boolean lattice $(X,\le)$ and a nonempty collection $(a_{ij})_{i\in I,j\in J}\subseteq X$ such that $$\bigvee_{i\in I}\bigwedge_{j\in J}{a_{ij}}\ne \bigwedge_{f:I\to J}\bigvee_{i\in ...

0-dimensional locally compact space

What is an example of a 0-dimensional locally compact Hausdorff space X for which the Cech-Stone compactification beta(X) is NOT 0-dimensional? It is known that if X is a 0-dimensional locally ...

Chain of ideals in a BA

Suppose $\mathfrak{A}$ is a Boolean algebra and $\mathfrak{J}$ is chain of ideals in $\mathfrak{A}$ ordered by inclusion such that none of its elements is countably generated. Clearly, the union ...

Jonsson Boolean algebras?

Let us say that a mathematical structure of cardinality $\omega_1$ is Jonsson whenever every one of its proper substructures is countable. There are examples of Jonsson groups due to Shelah or ...

An algebra constructed from symmetric differences

Let $S$ be a finite set. Let $R$ be a complex vector space with basis indexed by subsets of $S$. Define a product on $R$ by defining it on the basis elements as $1_A\cdot 1_B=1_{A\Delta B}$, where ...

relative Stone duality

Let $A$ be a fixed boolean ring. Is there a sort of classification of boolean rings $B$ with $A \subseteq B$? For example, if $A=\mathbb{F}_2$, the answer would be Stone duality: ...
