Request help on lattice problem
I submitted this once, but got no response so I am trying one more time.
Can anyone out there provide assistance on the following:
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 having an N element chain, every N >= 1?
An example, or counterexample for each of these would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance. Respond by mail at mhuxa!rgh1.
