Abstract. Let L be a lattice. If K is a sublattice of L, then L is called an extension of K. Lattice extension concept was elaborately studied by G. Grätzer and E. T. Schmidt in their papers , , , . A lattice L is said to be simple if it has no non-trivial congruences. A finite graded poset P is said to be Eulerian if its Möbius function assumes the value μ(x, y) = (-1)l(x, y) for all x £ y in P, where l(x, y) = ρ(y) - ρ(x) and ρ is the rank function on P. In this paper, we exhibit various possible Eulerian extensions which are simple for any given Eulerian lattice L and we prove that there exists a congruence-preserving extension of an Eulerian lattice. The cubic extension of a lattice was defined by G. Grätzer and E. T. Schmidt in . We show that the cubic extension becomes a congruence-preserving extension when the lattice is Eulerian.
Keywords: lattices; simple lattices; Eulerian lattices; lattice extension; congruence-preserving extension.
