The present paper comprises three rather independent notes. The first and second notes are about finite distributive lattices. We hasten to add that the title is a bit unprecise; the third note is actually about finite meet semidistributive lattices. In Section 1 an example of a self-dual distributive lattice, which does not allow for a polarity is given. This answers a question of Kamara. Another question of Metropolis, Rota, and Stein is settled as well. Both problems fit well into the…

Involutive Residuated Lattices Based on Modular and Distributive Lattices
It is shown that a large class of self-dual lattices may be endowed with an IRL structure, and examples of lattices which fail to admit IRLs with natural algebraic conditions are given.

The Birkhoff theorem for finite algebras
A finite analogue of the Birkhoff variety theorem is proved: a non-void class of finite algebras of a finite type τ is closed under the formation of finite products, subalgebras and homomorphic
Matchings and radon transforms in lattices. I. Consistent lattices
An element in a lattice is join-irreducible if x=a∨b implies x=a or x=b. A meet-irreducible is a join-irreducible in the order dual. A lattice is consistent if for every element x and every
Finite Sublattices of a Free Lattice
It is known that every sublattice A of a free lattice satisfies the following conditions: (W) For all a, b, c, d ∈ A, if ab ≤ c + d, then ab ≤ c or ab ≤ d or a ≤ c+d or b ≤ c + d. (SD) For all u, a,
