Abstract: Suppose that a Dedekind -complete partially ordered linear algebra *A* admits a function with familiar functional and order properties as possessed by the real-valued exponential, logarithm, root or power function on the real line. Then *A* can be characterized as an algebra of almost finite extended-real-valued continuous functions defined on some proper topological space.
