A family of totally ordered groups with some special properties

Elena Olivos (2005)

Annales mathématiques Blaise Pascal

Let K be a field with a Krull valuation | | and value group G { 1 } , and let B K be the valuation ring. Theories about spaces of countable type and Hilbert-like spaces in [1] and spaces of continuous linear operators in [2] require that all absolutely convex subsets of the base field K should be countably generated as B K -modules.By [1] Prop. 1.4.1, the field K is metrizable if and only if the value group G has a cofinal sequence. We prove that for any fixed cardinality κ , there exists a metrizable field K ...

A topological view of ordered groups

Dale Rolfsen (2014)

Banach Center Publications

In this expository article we use topological ideas, notably compactness, to establish certain basic properties of orderable groups. Many of the properties we shall discuss are well-known, but I believe some of the proofs are new. These will be used, in turn, to prove some orderability results, including the left-orderability of the group of PL homeomorphisms of a surface with boundary, which are fixed on at least one boundary component.

Bases of minimal elements of some partially ordered free abelian groups

Pavel Příhoda (2003)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

In the present paper, we will show that the set of minimal elements of a full affine semigroup A 0 k contains a free basis of the group generated by A in k . This will be applied to the study of the group K 0 ( R ) for a semilocal ring R .

Cantor extension of a half lineary cyclically ordered group

Štefan Černák (2001)

Discussiones Mathematicae - General Algebra and Applications

Convergent and fundamental sequences are studied in a half linearly cyclically ordered group G with the abelian increasing part. The main result is the construction of the Cantor extension of G.

Convex lines in median groups

Milan Kolibiar (1992)

Archivum Mathematicum

There is proved that a convex maximal line in a median group G , containing 0, is a direct factor of G .
