Abstract: Let *G* be an arbitrary lattice-ordered group. We define a topology on *G*, called the -topology, which is a group and lattice topology for *G* and which is preserved by cardinal products. The -topology is the interval topology on totally ordered groups and is discrete if and only if *G* is a lexico-sum of lexico-extensions of the integers. We derive necessary and sufficient conditions for the -topology to be Hausdorff, and we investigate -topology convergence.
