Given a non-zero vector $\boldsymbol{v}$ composed of integers, imagine the set of all non-zero integer vectors $\boldsymbol{u}$, such that $\boldsymbol{u} \cdot \boldsymbol{v} = 0$, i.e., the integer vectors orthogonal the original vector. The set $S = \{\boldsymbol{u} : \boldsymbol{u} \cdot \boldsymbol{v} = 0\}$ seems to form a $dim(\boldsymbol{v})-1$ dimensional lattice. Specifically, it’s clear that for […]

The set of positive semidefinite symmetric real matrices form a cone. We can define an order over the set of matrices by saying $X\geq Y$ if and only if $X-Y$ is positive semidefinite. I suspect that this order does not have the lattice property, but I would still like to know which matrices are candidates […]

It seems to be trivial but I am not sure about monotonicity of the norm in the non-commutative case: Is every C*-algebra a Banach lattice with respect to its natural positive cone?
