Abstract (Summary)
NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. A Riesz space L is said to be Egoroff, if, whenever [...] and [...], there is a sequence [...] in L such that [...] and, for each n,m, there exists an index k(n,m) such that [...]. This notion was introduced, in rather a different form, by Nakano. Banach function spaces are Egoroff, and Lorentz showed that, for any function seminorm [...], the maximal seminorm [...] among those which are dominated by [...] and which are [...] (a monotone seminorm [...] is [...] if [...]) is precisely the "Lorentz seminorm" [...], where [...]. In this thesis the extent to which [...] holds in general Riesz spaces is determined. In fact, [...] for every monotone seminorm [...] on a Riesz space L if, and only if, L is "almost-Egoroff". The almost-Egoroff property is closely related to the Egoroff property and, indeed, coincides with it in the case of Archimedean spaces. Analogous theorems for Boolean algebras are discussed. The almost-Egoroff property is shown to yield a number of results which ensure that, under certain conditions, a monotone seminorm is [...] when restricted to an appropriate super order dense ideal. Riesz spaces L possessing an integral, Riesz norm [...](i.e., a Riesz norm such that [...] are considered also, since in many cases these are known to be Egoroff. In particular if [...] is normal on L (i.e., [...] a directed system, [...] ), then L is Egoroff. In this connection, a pathological space, possessing an integral Riesz norm which is nowhere normal, is constructed.
