Convexities on Ordered Structures Have Their Krein-Milman Theorem
CMAP -- École Polytechnique, Route de Saclay, 91128 Palaiseau, France
We show analogues of the classical Krein-Milman theorem for several ordered algebraic structures, especially in a semilattice (non-linear) framework. In that case, subsemilattices are seen as convex subsets, and for our proofs we use arguments from continuous lattice theory and abstract convexity theory.
Keywords: Abstract convexity, max-plus convexity, tropical convexity, Krein-Milman theorem, convex geometries, antimatroids, partially ordered sets, semilattices, Lawson semilattices, lattices.
