Problem   Let $ A $ and $ B $ be infinite sets. Characterize the set of all coatoms of the lattice $ \mathsf{FCD}(A;B) $ of funcoids from $ A $ to $ B $. Particularly, is this set empty? Is $ \mathsf{FCD}(A;B) $ a coatomic lattice? coatomistic lattice?

See Algebraic General Topology for definitions of used concepts.


Coatoms of $ \mathsf{FCD}(A;B) $ are principal funcoids corresponding to binary relations of the form $ (A\times B)\setminus(\{x\}\times\{y\}) $ where $ x\in A $, $ y\in B $.

The set of funcoids is atomic but not atomistic.

See new version of the book Algebraic General Topology.
