A topological duality for monadic MV-algebras

Methodologies and Application


Monadic MV-algebras are an algebraic model of first-order infinite-valued Łukasiewicz logic in which only one propositional variable is considered. In this paper, we determine a topological duality for these algebras following well-known P. Halmos’ and H. Priestley’s dualities.
