Radical classes of Boolean algebras Galay, Theodore Alexander
This thesis obtains information about Boolean algebras by means of the radical concept. One group of results revolves about the concept, theorems, and constructions of general radical theory. We obtain some subdirect product representations by methods suggested by the theory. A large number of specific radicals are defined, and their properties and inter-relationships are examined. This provides a natural frame-work for results describing what epimorphs an algebra can have. Some new results of this nature are obtained in the process. Finally, a contribution is made to the structure theory of complete Boolean algebras. Product decomposition theorems are obtained, some of which make use of chains of radical classes.
