plural loaders

Agent noun of load; a person or device that loads. quotations examples

A loader performs the important work of storing goods in the wagons and of unloading the wagons. In each case considerable skill is required to avoid breakage, and, in the case of loading, skill goes far to conserve wagon space.

1944 March and April, T. F. Cameron, “The Working of Marshalling Yards and Goods Sheds”, in Railway Magazine, page 85

The loader […] placed the cartridge in the muzzle and shoved it in as far as he could. The rammer rammed it home, the gun captain inserting his priming wire to make sure.

plural abelian groups

(algebra) A group in which the group operation is commutative. quotations examples

Let G and H be partially ordered abelian groups. A positive homomorphism from G to H is any abelian group homomorphism f : G → H {\displaystyle f:G\rightarrow H} that maps positive elements to positive elements, that is, f ( G + ) ⊆ H + {\displaystyle f(G^{+})\subseteq H^{+}} .

Chapter 2 is a brief introduction to some fundamental techniques for countable torsion-free abelian groups.

By the end of Chapter 2 we had the full power of the Pontryagin Duality Theorem for compact abelian groups and for discrete abelian groups. Locally compact abelian groups are much closer to compact abelian groups than is apparent at first sight.
