In Chapter 4 we have seen how the system of all effects in a Hilbert space gives rise to a “genuine” Brouwer Zadeh poset (which is neither an orthoposet nor a lattice). We will now study other interesting ways of structuring the set of all concrete effects. In particular, we will see how effect algebras and quantum MV algebras naturally emerge from effect-systems.
