Abstract: A uniform topology induced by a set of finite measures on a quantum logic is studied. If is a valuation on , the topology induced by is equivalent to the topology induced by the pseudometric . If the set of measures is large enough, the topology reflects in some sense the structure of : if is a continuous geometry and the measures are totally additive, is weaker than the order topology on . If is atomic, is stronger than . On a separable Hilbert space logic, coincides with the discrete topology. Some cases are found in which .
