Abstract: Extrapolating from Ringrose's characterization of the Jacobson radical of a nest algebra, Hopenwasser conjectured that the radical of a CSL algebra coincides with the Ringrose ideal (the closure of the union of zero diagonal elements with respect to finite sublattices). A general interpolation theorem is proved that reduces this conjecture for completely distributive lattices to a strictly combinatorial problem. This problem is solved for all width two lattices (with no restriction of complete distributivity), verifying the conjecture in this case.
