Some aspects of radical theory for fully ordered Abelian groups. (English) Zbl 0584.06010

The notions of radical class and semisimple class of linearly ordered groups were introduced by C. G. Chehata and R. Wiegandt [Math., Rev. Anal. Numér. Théor. Approximation, Math. 20, 143-157 (1978; Zbl 0409.06008)]. All linearly ordered groups dealt with in the present paper are assumed to be abelian. A class X of linearly ordered groups is said to be hereditary if, whenever \(G\in X\) and H is a convex subgroup of G, then \(H\in X\). It is proved that (i) each hereditary class determines a hereditary lower radical class, and (ii) each homomorphically closed class determines a homomorphically closed semisimple class. Further there are investigated radical classes and semisimple classes which are determined by conditions on skeletons of member groups. Several interesting examples are given.
