Lattices
Can anyone out there give me a hand with these two questions about lattices?
1. Does there exist an infinite distributive lattice such that
every chain is finite?
2. Does there exist a distributive lattice having no infinite
chain but hang an n-element chain, every n>=1?
Anyone having proofs for or against or examples for or against, please
contact me by mail at mhuxa!rgh1. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
