I've noticed that while there are tags ordered-groups and ordered-fields, there is no tag ordered-rings. The issue is that there was a little amount of questions with this tag. So it got deleted.

I propose the following solutions:

Rename ordered-groups to ordered-groups-and-rings, or rename ordered-fields to ordered-fields-and-rings.


1 Answer 1


Certainly renaming into would be counterproductive, because a large part of the research on ordered groups concerns 1-dimensional dynamics and unrelated to ring/field theory.

On the other hand, I tend to think that replacing with would be natural and fine. Probably it would be fine to encompass semirings too. In a sense, the main default of would be its length but this is not a major obstruction.
