Abstract:  A left- or bi- partial ordering of an algebraic structure is a partial ordering of the elements of the structure that is invariant under the structure acting on itself on the left or, respectively, both on the left and on the right. I will discuss algorithmic properties of the orderings admitted by a computable structures and their general properties, and describe some open problems.
