Let \(A(R)\) be the group of all order-preserving permutations of the real line \(R\). Under the pointwise order, \(A(R)\) is a lattice-ordered group. Let us denote by \(S\) the system of all non-trivial partial orders on \(A(R)\) under which \(A(R)\) is a partially ordered group. The system \(S\) is partially ordered in a natural way.
The results of this very interesting paper are as follows. (a) \(S\) contains exactly two elements under which \(A(R)\) is lattice-ordered, namely the pointwise order and its inverse. (b) \(S\) has exactly 16 minimal elements. (c) \(S\) has exactly 40 maximal elements.
