## A Compendium of Continuous LatticesThe purpose of this monograph is to present a fairly complete account of the development of the theory of continuous lattices as it currently exists. An attempt has been made to keep the body of the text expository and reasonably self-contained; somewhat more leeway has been allowed in the exercises. Much of what appears within the text constitutes basic, foundational or elementary material needed for the theory, but a considerable amount of more advanced exposition is also included. |
