In science:

Fact 4.2. A tame chain C has a reconstrutible well ordering i.e. there is a formula ϕ(x, y , ¯P ) ( ¯P ⊆ C ) that defines a well ordering on the elements of C of order type α and there is a formula ψ(x, y , ¯Q) ( ¯Q ⊆ α) that defines a linear order <∗ on the elements of α such that (α, <∗ ) ∼= (C, <).
Uniformization and Skolem functions in the class of trees
Summing up we can define (using the above parameters) a partial order on subsets of T that well orders each Aη , orders sub-branches Aη , Aν when the indices are comparable in Γ and well orders all the “immediate successors” sub-branches of a sub-branch Aη .
Uniformization and Skolem functions in the class of trees
Why is the above (which is clearly definable with our parameters) a well order? Because of the above note and because a lexicographic ordering of a well founded tree is a well order, provided that immediate successors are well ordered.
Uniformization and Skolem functions in the class of trees

This difference in behavior comes from the fact that random bonds destroy order-disorder coexistence without destroying order itself [3,4], whereas random fields destroy both order-disorder coexistence, through the rescale-generated bond randomness, and order per se.
Strongly Asymmetric Tricriticality of Quenched Random-Field Systems
