Filter theory of extended implicative groupoids


We investigate the filter theory of weak extended implicative groupoids. First, we introduce the well-known families of filters on weak extended implicative groupoids, and we study their basic properties. The family of weak extended implicative groupoids is very large and not well behaved; for providing a good characterization of the specific filters, such as positive implicative filters, we ought to separate this family into smaller parts. For this, we distinguish some types of weak extended implicative groupoids. Then we characterize the essential properties of these filters and the relation between these filters on different types of weak extended implicative groupoids.
