 PlanetMath: complete distributivity (333 words) is a singleton, we have the concepts of join infinite distributivity and the meet infinite distributivity, intermediate between those of distributivity and complete distributivity. A lattice that satisfies both countable distributivity laws must be a countably complete lattice. A lattice that satisfies any of meet infinite distributivity, join infinite distributivity, meet continuity, or join continuity individually must be complete inherently.
 Distributivity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (781 words) In mathematics, and in particular in abstract algebra, distributivity is a property of binary operations that generalises the distributive law from elementary algebra. Multiplication of numbers is distributive over addition of numbers, for a broad class of different kinds of numbers ranging from natural numbers to complex numbers and cardinal numbers. Distributivity is most commonly found in rings and distributive lattices.
