Ordered Structures in Rings
Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics book series (PBM)
From our first course in abstract algebra, we learned that ℝ, the set of all integers, is not only a ring, but an ordered ring, in that we have the ordering relation
between its elements. For arbitrary rings, it is also of significance to study their orderings if they exist.
$$ \cdots < - 2 < - 1 < 0 < 1 < 2 < \cdots $$
