The tensor product of Archimedean ordered vector spaces. (English) Zbl 0663.46006

The paper contains remarkable simplifications of the tensor product construction of Archimedean Riesz spaces given previously by D. H. Fremlin [Math. Ann. 211, 87-106 (1974; Zbl 0272.46050)] or H. H. Schaefer [MAA Studies Math. 21, 158-221 (1980; Zbl 0494.46021)]. The authors present two different approaches. The first is analogous to the formation of a free lattice generated by a given partially ordered set. In the second approach it is assumed first that given spaces have the principal projection property and a construction by step-elements is used; arbitrary spaces are embedded into their Dedekind completions. The results are useful in the theory of Banach lattices and give the basic constructions in the theory of Riesz spaces.
