Abstract: A method for embedding a certain class of integral domains in division rings is devised. Integral domains are constructed with a generalized valuation into a (noncommutative) totally ordered semigroup that need not be discrete. Then the multiplicative semigroup is expressed as an inverse limit of semigroups each of which is embeddable in a group. Thus can be embedded in a group . The main problem is to introduce addition on in order that becomes a division ring by the use of eventually commuting maps of inverse limits.
