Summary: We compare the forcing-related properties of a complete Boolean algebra ${\mathbb B}$ with the properties of the convergences $\lambda _{\mathrm s}$ (the algebraic convergence) and $\lambda _{\mathrm {ls}}$ on ${\mathbb B}$ generalizing the convergence on the Cantor and Aleksandrov cube, respectively. In particular, we show that $\lambda _{\mathrm {ls}}$ is a topological convergence iff forcing by ${\mathbb B}$ does not produce new reals and that $\lambda _{\mathrm {ls}}$ is weakly topological if ${\mathbb B}$ satisfies condition $(\hbar )$ (implied by the ${\mathfrak t}$-cc). On the other hand, if $\lambda _{\mathrm {ls}}$ is a weakly topological convergence, then ${\mathbb B}$ is a $2^{\mathfrak h}$-cc algebra or in some generic extension the distributivity number of the ground model is greater than or equal to the tower number of the extension. So, the statement “The convergence $\lambda _{\mathrm {ls}}$ on the collapsing algebra ${\mathbb B}=\mathop {\mathrm {ro}} (^{<\omega }\omega _2)$ is weakly topological“ is independent of ZFC. (English)
