Note on free algebras over continuous domains. (English) Zbl 0896.08008
Summary: We provide a simple direct proof that for a finitary signature and a set of inequalities the free algebra functor on the category of directed complete partial orders (dcpo’s) takes continuous, respectively algebraic, dcpo’s to free algebras whose underlying dcpo is again continuous, respectively algebraic.
