# Least Integer Closed Groups

Chapter

## Abstract

An a-closure of a lattice-ordered group is an extension which is maximal with respect to preserving the lattice of convex *l*-subgroups under contraction. We describe the a-closures of some local singular archimedean lattice-ordered groups with designated weak unit. In particular, we provide explicit descriptions of all of the a-closures of groups that are singularly convex, such as the group C(X, ℤ) of continuous integer-valued functions on a zero-dimensional space.
