General description

The course treats ordered general ordered structures mostly in discrete mathematics.
The main notion is that of a partially ordered set, or poset, a transitive and reflexive
operation on a given set. Partially ordered sets have their origin in the works of Boole,
Peirce and Schroeder in the context of Boolean algebras. Modern theory of posets
covers close connections to lattice theory and universal algebra.

Learning outcomes

The theory of partially ordered sets belongs to discrete mathematics.
The course offers an overview of ordered structures in mathematics.

Contents

1. Posets including Moebius functions
2. Lattices including congruences and ideals
3. Special Lattices:
Distributive and modular lattices
Algebraic lattices
Complemented lattices
