New edition of successful and unique textbook for students in mathematics or theoretical computer science.


This second edition of a text devoted to ordered sets and lattices and their contemporary applications presents a reorganization and updating of the content of the first (1990) edition. There is a fresh treatment of fixpoint theorems and more emphasis on Galois connections. New exercises have also been added to this edition. Written for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students, the book requires background in abstract algebra and the notation of set theory. Davey is affiliated with La Trobe University. Priestley is affiliated with the University of Oxford. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
