The Dedekind Completion of d-Algebras

  • Elmiloud Chil


It is shown that the multiplication in an Archimedean d-algebra A can be extended to a multiplication in the Dedekind completion Aδ of A such that Aδ becomes a d-algebra with respect to this extended multiplication. This answers a question posed by Huijsmans in Studies in Economic Theory (Vol. 2, Springer, Berlin, 1991).
