In science:

Note that a generalized number u is strictly positive precisely when it is invertible (due to Proposition 2. 2 this means that u is strictly non-zero) and positive (i. e., u has a representative (uε )ε which is greater or equals zero for each ε ∈ I ).
The wave equation on static singular space-times
We denote by ν+ (A) (resp. ν− (A)) the number of strictly positive (resp. strictly negative) eigenvalues, counting multiplicity.
The wave equation on static singular space-times
Clearly, χD u ∈ A, furthermore, if the submodule generated by χD u is not a strict submodule of A, one may replace D by ¯D := {ε2k | k ≥ 1} to achieve one in the same way, which however is a strict submodule of A and we are done.
The wave equation on static singular space-times
This is well defined by the fact that −g (ξ , ξ ) = −hξ , ξ i is a strictly positive function on U , the square root of the latter is strictly positive as well, and this means p−hξ , ξ i is invertible.
The wave equation on static singular space-times
The ring of complex generalized numbers, denoted by eC := EM /N , is obtained by taking E = C. eC is not a field since by Theorem 1.2.38 in only the elements which are strictly nonzero (i.e. the elements which have a representative strictly nonzero) are invertible and vice versa.
Generalized Fourier Integral Operators on spaces of Colombeau type
Note that all the representatives of u ∈ eC are strictly nonzero once we know that there exists at least one which is strictly nonzero.
Generalized Fourier Integral Operators on spaces of Colombeau type
There exists ν > 0, independent of N and n, such that, if xℓ/ρℓ > 1 − ν , then gℓ(x) is strictly increasing in xℓ and tends to +∞ as xℓ/ρℓ ↑ +1; similarly if xℓ/ρℓ < −1 + ν , then gℓ (x) is strictly decreasing in xℓ and tends to −∞ as xℓ/ρℓ ↓ −1.
