Abstract

Brouwerian semilattices are meet-semilattices with 1 in which every element a has a relative pseudocomplement with respect to every element b, i. e. a greatest element c with aŮc Ł b. Properties of classes of reflexive and compatible binary relations, especially of congruences of such algebras are described and an abstract characterization of congruence classes via ideals is obtained.

Keywords: congruence class, Brouwerian semilattice, ideal.
