This chapter considers H-fields, pre-differential-valued fields with a field ordering that interacts with the valuation and derivation. Axiomatizing this interaction yields the notion of a pre-H-field; H-fields are d-valued pre-H-fields. The chapter begins by upgrading some basic facts on asymptotic fields to pre-d-valued fields; for example, algebraic extensions of pre-d-valued fields are pre-d-valued, not just asymptotic. It then adjoins integrals to pre-d-valued fields of H-type. It shows that every pre-d-valued field of H-type has a canonical differential-valued extension. It also adjoins exponential integrals to pre-d-valued fields of H-type. Finally, it describes Liouville closed H-fields, and especially the uniqueness properties of Liouville closure.

Keywords:   valuation, derivation, H-field, asymptotic field, integral, differential-valued extension, exponential integral, Liouville closed H-field, Liouville closure, pre-differential-valued field
