In science:

Suppose G admits an unperforated partial ordering such that the map G → Aff S (G, u) is an embedding; then the ordering is unique (the smallest ordering is strict ordering, the largest ordering is the pointwise one).
Simple archimedean dimension groups
The idea behind the work in this paper is that every ordered indiscernible sequence in an N I P theory should look like a colored order: there is an order for which different cuts are orthogonal and something stable on top of it which does not see the order (see Section 3).
Distal and non-distal NIP theories
An ordered graph is a graph with an associated ordering of its vertices, where this ordering is interpreted as the order in which these vertices appeared in the probabilistic process or the deterministic game.
