    Thanks to a Guest comment here I looked at this page for essentially the first time, and realized that it’s one more thing that’s naturally done in linear constructive mathematics (“complemented subsets” or “disjoint pairs” are the elements of the linear powerset).

    One question: this page says that the disjoint pairs form a “Boolean rig”, but that doesn’t seem right to me. A Boolean rig would, I presume, lack a negation operation entirely; but here we do have an involutive “negation” even though it’s not the “additive inverse”. I would say that the disjoint pairs form a De Morgan algebra, and in fact more generally a *\ast-autonomous lattice. Am I misinterpreting the intended meaning of “Boolean rig”?

    Also, what is the “Handbook of Constructive Analysis” referred to (as a graylink from Bishop \& Bridges)? I can’t find it on google.

    Where are you getting that title from?

    I presume the referernce is just to

    Bishop, Errett and Douglas Bridges, 1985. Constructive Analysis. New York: Springer. ISBN 0-387-15066-8.

    Second paragraph of the idea section of the page:

    Some of the [[abstract nonsense]] below is original research (by [[Toby Bartels]] and [[Todd Trimble]]), but based heavily on Cheng\'s work as described in [[Handbook of Constructive Analysis|Bishop & Bridges]].
