Ordered groups

Abbreviation: OGrp

Definition

An ordered group is a partially ordered group $\mathbf{G}=\langle G,\cdot,^{-1},1,\le\rangle$ such that

$\le$ is linear: $x\le y\text{ or }y\le x$

It is not unusual to give several (equivalent) definitions. Ideally, one of the definitions would give an irredundant axiomatization that does not refer to other classes.

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be ordered groups. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a orderpreserving homomorphism: $h(x \cdot y)=h(x) \cdot h(y)$, $x\le y\Longrightarrow h(x)\le h(y)$.

Definition

A is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,...\rangle$ of type $\langle ...\rangle$ such that

$...$ is …: $axiom$
