Transferring Optimal Dualities: Theory and Practice

  • B. A. Davey (a1) and M. Haviar (a2)

Abstract

Consider the quasi-variety generated by a finite algebra and assume that yields a natural duality on based on which is optimal modulo endomorphisms. We shoe that, provided satisfies certain minimality conditions, we can transfer this duality to a natural duality on based on , which is also optimal modulo endormorphisms, for any finite algebra in that has a subalgebra isomorphic to .
