## Abstract

top
We fix a Boolean subalgebra B of an orthomodular poset P and study the mappings s:P → [0,1] which respect the ordering and the orthocomplementation in P and which are additive on B. We call such functions B-states on P. We first show that every P possesses "enough" two-valued B-states. This improves the main result in [13], where B is the centre of P. Moreover, it allows us to construct a closure-space representation of orthomodular lattices. We do this in the third section. This result may also be viewed as a generalization of [6]. Then we prove an extension theorem for B-states giving, as a by-product, a topological proof of a classical Boolean result.
