Compact factor congruences imply Boolean factor congruences

Original Paper


We prove that any variety \( \mathcal{V} \) in which every factor congruence is compact has Boolean factor congruences, i.e., for all A in \( \mathcal{V} \) the set of factor congruences of A is a distributive sublattice of the congruence lattice of A.
