 This book is another publication in the recent surveys of ordered sets and lattices. The papers, which might be characterized as "reviews of reviews," are based on articles reviewed in the Referativnyĭ Zhurnal: Matematika from 1978 to 1982. For the sake of completeness, the authors also attempted to integrate information from other relevant articles from that period. The bibliography of each paper provides references to the reviews in RZhMat and Mathematical Reviews where one can seek more detailed information. Specifically excluded from consideration in this volume were such topics as algebras of logic, Boolean functions, vector lattices, ordered algebraic systems (including ordered topological spaces), and semigroup properties of semilattices, as well as papers in which such topics as nonlatticetheoretical properties of congruence lattices and subalgebra lattices were considered.
