Boolean Partition Algebras
by Van Name, Joseph, Ph.D., University of South Florida, 2013, 128; 3560193
Abstract (Summary)

A Boolean partition algebra is a pair (B, F ) where B is a Boolean algebra and F is a filter on the semilattice of partitions of B where [special characters omitted] F = B \ {0}. In this dissertation, we shall investigate the algebraic theory of Boolean partition algebras and their connection with uniform spaces. In particular, we shall show that the category of complete non-Archimedean uniform spaces is equivalent to a subcategory of the category of Boolean partition algebras, and notions such as supercompleteness of non-Archimedean uniform spaces can be formulated in terms of Boolean partition algebras.
