Absolute value #

This file defines a notational class has_abs which adds the unary operator abs and the notation |.|. The concept of an absolute value occurs in lattice ordered groups and in GL and GM spaces.

Mathematical structures possessing an absolute value often also possess a unique decomposition of elements into "positive" and "negative" parts which are in some sense "disjoint" (e.g. the Jordan decomposition of a measure). This file also defines has_pos_part and has_neg_part classes which add unary operators pos and neg, representing the maps taking an element to its positive and negative part respectively along with the notation ⁺ and ⁻.

Notations #

The following notation is introduced:
