Research Projects

Dr. Ma's research interest is Lattice-ordered Rings and Algebras. G. Birkhoff and R.S. Pierce first established the general theory for lattice-ordered rings in 1956. Dr. Ma's focus is getting a better understanding of the structures of lattice-ordered rings and algebras and answering questions in lattice-ordered rings.
