Comparison of exponential-logarithmic and logarithmic-exponential series

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We explain how the field of logarithmic-exponential series constructed in 20 and 21 embeds as an exponential field in any field of exponential-logarithmic series constructed in 9, 6, and 13. On the other hand, we explain why no field of exponential-logarithmic series embeds in the field of logarithmic-exponential series. This clarifies why the two constructions are intrinsically different, in the sense that they produce non-isomorphic models of Th(R{double-struck} an, exp the elementary theory of the ordered field of real numbers, with the exponential function and restricted analytic functions.
