# Definition:Ordered Group Monomorphism

## Definition

Let $\left({S, \circ, \preceq}\right)$ and $\left({T, *, \preccurlyeq}\right)$ be ordered groups.

An ordered group monomorphism from $\left({S, \circ, \preceq}\right)$ to $\left({T, *, \preccurlyeq}\right)$ is a mapping $\phi: S \to T$ that is both:

$(1): \quad$ A group monomorphism from the group $\left({S, \circ}\right)$ to the group $\left({T, *}\right)$
$(2): \quad$ An order embedding from the ordered set $\left({S, \preceq}\right)$ to the ordered set $\left({T, \preccurlyeq}\right)$.

## Linguistic Note

The word monomorphism comes from the Greek morphe (μορφή) meaning form or structure, with the prefix mono- meaning single.

Thus monomorphism means single (similar) structure.
