L-quantum spaces



In this paper, based on a complete residuated lattice L, we introduce the definitions of L-quantum spaces and continuous mappings. Then we establish an adjunction between the category of stratified L-quantum spaces and the opposite category of two-sided L-quantales. We also prove that the category of sober L-quantum spaces is dually equivalent to the category of spatial two-sided L-quantales.
