Description:
The study of lattice varieties is has experienced a rapid growth in the last decades, but many of the results discovered in that period appeared only in research papers. This book presents the main results about modular and nonmodular varieties, equational bases and the amalgamation property in a uniform way. The text covers preliminaries that make the material accessible to anyone with an introductory course in universal algebra. Each chapter begins with a short historical introduction and then presents the results with complete proofs. Numerous diagrams illustrate the lattice theory and aid in the visualization of the proofs. Extensive bibliography makes the monograph a useful reference work.
