Abstract: We show that the range of a positive derivation on a Dedekind -complete partially ordered linear algebra with an order unit is a set of generalized nilpotents. With additional assumptions on the algebra, we show that the algebra has an important property similar to a property of the algebra of upper triangular matrices.
