Lattice

In mathematics, a lattice is a partially ordered set in which any two elements have a supremum and an infimum. Lattices can also be characterized as algebraic structures satisfying certain axiomatic identities. Since the two definitions are equivalent, lattice theory draws on both order theory and universal algebra. Semilattices include lattices, which in turn include Heyting and Boolean algebras. These "lattice-like" structures all admit order-theoretic as well as algebraic descriptions.

### Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms
