In the latest developments in the theory of skew lattices, the study of
distributivity has been one of the main topics. Furthermore, the largest
classes of examples of such algebras are distributive. Unlike what happens
in lattices, the properties of cancellation and distributivity are
independent for skew lattices. In the past two years a group of
mathematicians have worked on this topic (namely K. Cvetko-Vah, J. Leech,
M. Spinks and M. Kinyon). In this talk we will discuss several aspects of
distributivity in the absence of commutativity, review the recent results
by Kinyon and Leech on these matters and have an insight on the coset
structure of those algebras that satisfy this property.
