*Lattice concept, First Concepts*, in 1971. Then got here

*General Lattice Theory*, First variation, in 1978, and the second one variation 20 years later. because the ebook of the 1st variation in 1978,

*General Lattice Theory*has turn into the authoritative advent to lattice idea for graduate scholars and the traditional reference for researchers. the 1st variation got down to introduce and survey lattice idea. a few 12,000 papers were released within the box considering that then; so

*Lattice thought: Foundation*makes a speciality of introducing the sector, laying the root for detailed themes and functions.

*Lattice conception: Foundation*, in keeping with the former 3 books, covers the basic ideas and effects. the most themes are distributivity, congruences, structures, modularity and semimodularity, kinds, and unfastened items. The bankruptcy on structures is new, all of the different chapters are revised and elevated models from the sooner volumes. virtually forty “diamond sections’’, many written via major experts in those fields, supply a short glimpse into detailed issues past the fundamentals. “Lattice concept has come a protracted way... should you delight in lattice concept, or who're focused on its concepts and fascinating inner difficulties, Professor Grätzer's lucid new booklet offers a most precious advisor to many fresh advancements. Even a cursory examining should still supply these few who should think that lattice idea is superficial or naive, with convincing proof of its technical intensity and sophistication.”

*Bulletin of the yank Mathematical Society*“Grätzer’s e-book normal Lattice concept has turn into the lattice theorist’s bible.”
