Abstract

If two compact Hausdorff spaces have elementarily equivalent lattices of closed sets, then their unital rings of continuous real-valued functions satisfy the same positive-universal sentences. We briefly indicate how this is proved (with details appearing elsewhere), and offer fairly strong evidence that the weakness of the conclusion is in some sense inevitable.
