## An Analytic Sales Pitch for Ordered Fields

##### Abstract:

Abstract notions of measurement -- Hilbert spaces, metric spaces, measure spaces -- most commonly use the real numbers as the associated measuring stick. In this talk I'll give an overview of some fun applications of more general ordered fields, namely in the areas of fractal geometry and integration theory, and discuss a few notable obstacles and moral guidelines for future use.
