M-Zeroids: Structure and Categorical Equivalence

  • Joshua B. PalmatierEmail author

In this note we develop a method for constructing finite totally-ordered m-zeroids and prove that there exists a categorical equivalence between the category of finite, totally-ordered m-zeroids and the category of pseudo Łukasiewicz-like implicators.
