Generalized Łukasiewicz rings
- First Online:
This paper extends the study of commutative rings whose ideals form an MV-algebra as carried out by Belluce and Di Nola (Math Log Q 55(5):468–486, 2009) to non-commutative rings. We study and characterize all rings whose ideals form a pseudo-MV-algebra, which shall be called here generalized Łukasiewicz rings. We obtain that up to isomorphism, these are exactly the direct sums of unitary special primary rings.
