# ordered-integral-domain

Noun

(*plural* ordered integral domains)

- (algebra) An integral domain which has a subset whose elements are said to be "positive", such that this subset is closed under addition, closed under multiplication, and all elements of the integral domain satisfy a law of trichotomy; namely, that either that element is in the said subset, or it is the zero (additive identity), or its product with −1 (the additive inverse of the multiplicative identity) belongs to the said subset.
