S. Wolfenstein (ed.)

Algebra and Order
Proceedings of the First International Symposium on
Ordered Algebraic Structures, Luminy-Marseilles 1984

400 p., soft cover, ISBN 3-88538-214-8, EUR 38.00, 1986

These proceedings present for the first time a complete survey of the current research in this large field. In correspondence to the thematic architecture of the conference the papers are built around lattice ordered groups as the central pillar of strength. Other sections forming also integral parts of the whole concept are: a section on vector lattices and function algebras as a link to functional analysis, a section on real algebraic geometry, and one on ordered semigroups, semirings and related structures.
