A History of Results on Orderability and Suborderability

  title={A History of Results on Orderability and Suborderability},
  author={Saulo Purisch},
This is an early history of the theory of ordered sets and of results characterizing various classes of orderable and suborderable spaces until 1975. Many excellent results (such as most of D.J. Lutzer’s work and the influence of the Souslin conjecture) which only give properties of these spaces are not covered. However, at the end of this article historical references are given for the more general theory of ordered spaces including set-theoretical developments.
