Free products of circularly ordered groups with amalgamated subgroup. (English) Zbl 07174670
Summary: This paper gives necessary and sufficient conditions that the free product with amalgamation of circularly ordered groups admit a circular ordering extending the given orderings of the factors. Our result follows from establishing a categorical framework that allows the problem to be restated in terms of amalgamating certain left-ordered central extensions, where we are able to apply work of Bludov and Glass.
