Uniform structure induced by an absolute value #

THIS FILE IS SYNCHRONIZED WITH MATHLIB4. Any changes to this file require a corresponding PR to mathlib4.

We build a uniform space structure on a commutative ring R equipped with an absolute value into a linear ordered field 𝕜. Of course in the case R is , or and 𝕜 = ℝ, we get the same thing as the metric space construction, and the general construction follows exactly the same path.

Implementation details #

Note that we import data.real.cau_seq because this is where absolute values are defined, but the current file does not depend on real numbers. TODO: extract absolute values from that data.real folder.
