Abstract

We investigate the number and size of the maximal sublattices of a finite lattice. For any positive integer k, there is a finite lattice L with more that ]L]k sublattices. On the other hand, there are arbitrary large finite lattices which contain a maximal sublattice with only 14 elements. It is shown that every bounded lattice is isomorphic to the Frattini sublattice (the intersection of all maximal sublattices) of a finite bounded lattice.
