The Prime Spectrum of an MV‐Algebra

Mathematical Logic Quarterly 40 (3):331-346 (1994)

In this paper we show that the prime ideal space of an MV-algebra is the disjoint union of prime ideal spaces of suitable local MV-algebras. Some special classes of algebras are defined and their spaces are investigated. The space of minimal prime ideals is studied as well
