Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


After a discussion on property lattices, I introduce a category of such lattices and structure-preserving maps. A careful analysis of the notions of physical system and of subsystem leads to the construction of a particular family of morphisms that are used for the construction of the coproduct in this category.
