Spectral duality for finitely generated nilpotent minimum algebras, with applications

S. Aguzzoli, Manuela Busaniche, V. Marra


We establish a categorical duality for the finitely generated Lindenbaum-Tarski algebras of propositional nilpotent minimum logic. The latter's conjunction is semantically interpreted by a left-continuous (but not continuous) triangular norm; implication is obtained through residuation. Our duality allows one to transfer to nilpotent minimum logic several known results about inutitionistic logic with the prelineari\-ty axiom (also called G\"{o}del-Dummett logic), mutatis mutandis. We give several such applications.
