Weak Injectivity and Congruence Extension in Congruence-Distributive Equational Classes Academic Article uri icon


  • There are many concepts which arise naturally in a discussion of injectivity in an equational class; for example, weak injective algebras, absolute subretracts, essential extensions, the congruence extension property, and the amalgamation property (see [3; 9; 17; 18]). It has already been demonstrated in several papers, notably [9; 17; 26; 27; 28], that the study of these concepts is greatly enriched by the assumption that the algebras under consideration have distributive congruence lattices. In this work attention is focused on weak injective algebras (Section 2) and the congruence extension property (Section 3).
