Local algebras in the representation of MV-algebras

By A. Di Nola, I. Esposito, B. Gerla

In this paper we present several results about local MV-algebras, extending existing results given for MV-chains. The role of local MV-algebras in sheaf representation and weak boolean product is stressed and the relationship of local MV-algebras with varieties of MV-algebras is analyzed.
