Revisiting the Works of Mihail Benado
Sergiu Rudeanu and Dragos Vaida
Mihail Benado was a Romanian algebraist who worked in lattice theory, group theory and interconnections. He is the creator of the theory of multilattices, which nowadays has important applications in computer science. The present paper tries to sketch an overview of Benado’s works, which comprise not only multilattices, but several other important lines of research, which deserve to be recalled to the contemporary mathematical community.
Keywords: multilattice, regular product, Schreier refinement theorem, Dedekind quadrilateral, division semigroup, partially additive semantics, monotone connection, semidistance, diametric space
