The ordinal scale of measurement represents the ranks of a variable's values.
Values measured on an ordinal scale contain information about their relationship to other values only in terms of whether they are "greater than" or "less than" other values but not in terms of "how much greater" or "how much smaller."
In Taguchi experimental design methodology, the repeated measurements of the response variable are often taken in a systematic fashion, with the goal to manipulate noise factors.

  Ordinal number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ordinal scale defines a total preorder of objects; the scale values themselves have a total order; names may be used like "bad", "medium", "good"; if numbers are used they are only relevant up to strictly monotonically increasing transformations (order isomorphism).
An ordinal is finite if and only if the opposite order is also well-ordered, which is the case if and only if each of its subsets has a greatest element.
Ordinals which don't have an immediate predecessor can always be written as a limit of a net of other ordinals (but not necessarily as the limit of a sequence, i.e.

 Kids.net.au - Encyclopedia Ordinal number -
Ordinal numbers, or ordinals for short, are numbers used to denote the position in an ordered sequence: first, second, third, fourth, etc. The mathematician Georg Cantor showed in 1897 how to extend this concept beyond the natural numbers to the infinite and how to do arithmetic with these transfinite ordinals.
Whenever you have two ordinals S and T, S is an element of T if and only if S is a subset of T, and moreover, either S is an element of T, or T is an element of S, or they are equal.
Ordinals which don't have an immediate predecessor can always be written as a limit like this and are called limit ordinals.

 Ordinal number - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
To multiply the two ordinals S and T you write down the well-ordered set T and replace each of its elements with a different copy of the well-ordered set S. This results in a well-ordered set, which defines a unique ordinal; we call it ST.
There are ordinal numbers which can not be reached from ω with a finite number of the arithmetical operations addition, multiplication and exponentiation.
Arithmetic operations on ordinals can be captured by algorithms that transform Cantor normal forms, similar to, but more complicated than, the algorithms for integer arithmetic in terms of the decimal notation usually taught in primary education.

The ordinal comparison is inconsistent, for the row comparison "one cell" is "less than" the "other cell" but for the column comparison "one cell" is "greater than" the "other cell." For these comparisons the movie which was rated as more violent was rated as having fewer stars.

The ordinal logistic regression model is logit(p_ij) = theta(j) + x_i'beta, i = 1,..,length(Y), j = 1,..,k-1, where x_i is the i'th row of X.
Comparing this with the output from ordinal above, we see that the coefficient beta from ordinal is the same as the regression coefficient from R. The coefficient theta from ordinal is minus the intercept coefficient from R. The standard errors are the same in each case.
The deviance from ordinal is the residual deviance from R. The null deviance in R is the same as the residual deviance from the null model, output as the deviance from ordinal above when there was no predictor variable.

 Ordinal position in Window types
When a window's ordinal position is changed, its order in the sibling list is also changed, so that the window with ordinal position 0 is always first in the sibling list, the window with ordinal position 1 is next in the list, and so on.
For convenience, the functions for setting ordinal position allow a negative ordinal position to be specified, which sends the window to the back and sets its ordinal position to be the highest among its siblings.
As a result, the z-order of applications on the screen is typically determined by the ordinal positions of their window groups: for example, giving a window group an ordinal position of 0 will typically bring an application to the front of the screen.

 What is the difference between categorical, ordinal and interval variables?
An ordinal variable is similar to a categorical variable.
An interval variable is similar to an ordinal variable, except that the intervals between the values of the interval variable are equally spaced.
Sometimes you have variables that are "in between" ordinal and interval, for example, a five-point likert scale with values "strongly agree", "agree", "neutral", "disagree" and "strongly disagree".

Ordinal numbers even have an interesting arithmetic: we can add two ordinals by concatenating their order types, and considering the ordinal that represents the new order type.
Thus ordinal multiplication is not necessarily commutative, either, because (2)(omega) is (omega) which is not the same order time as (omega)(2).

Measurements with ordinal scales are ordered in the sense that higher numbers represent higher values.

As for (c2) and (d1), a cofinal subset of the required type can easily be constructed and it can be shown that any greater cofinality of the result would imply a greater cofinality of the operand (the contradiction).
As for (d3), if we suppose b to be the least ordinal such that there exists an ordinal a that the proposition fails, we get a contradiction from the fact that cf (a^b) = cf (a^{b-1}) here.
Ordinal expressions with variables can also be formally manipulated, but the rules of ordinal arithmetics do not allow full control of getting the result.

Their definition uses the Hessenberg operations of the ordinal numbers.It may be considered as making use of an infinite dimensional K-theory  which  is mainly not created yet.
We fix a mapping h for each ordinal that is contained in F.So we can talk about the set of ordinals contained in F as if it is a subset of F.The set of  ordinal  numbers  that  are contained in a linearly ordered  set-field,  is  obviously  a non-empty set.
The ordinal integers are  semigroup-rings of quotient monoids of semigroups that are used to define as semigroup-rings  the hierarchy of integral domains of the transfinite  integers  (see  [Gleyzal A. pp  586).I  use  the term hierarchy not only as a well ordered sequence but also as a net (thus partially ordered).

 ORDINAL REAL NUMBERS 2
It is surprising that in one of the consequences of the theory of ordinal real numbers, it is proved a far more advanced and complete result for the whole category of order types that has as corollary the previous important and elementary arithmetisation.
In other words the fields of ordinal real numbers are Archemidean complete fields (although they may be non-Archemidean).But this is a characteristic property of the fields of transfinite real numbersb of Glayzal.
But this is a characteristic property of the fields of the ordinal real numbers.Hence they are order and  field  isomorphic  with  fields  of ordinal  real  numbers .Thus  the ordinal  real  numbers  should   be considered as a different technique,nevertheless indispensable and more far reaching.It is the technique  that  everyone  would  like  to work.

 Ordinal Optimization
Ordinal Optimization has been applied on a 10-node network, where it is shown that we can isolate a good design with high probability with relatively short simulations, instead of long simulations.
A crucial issue to apply Ordinal Optimization is the ability of knowing when we are confident or satisfied enough with the ordinal results, e.g., a good subset has been determined with high probability.
To fully utilize the advantages of ordinal Optimization, in this subject, we are developing effective approaches to quantify the simulation confidence level, particularly for large discrete-event systems.
