In previous works, Buskes and the author have made use of representations of Archimedean Riesz spaces in terms of real-valued continuous functions defined on dense open subsets of a topological space in studying tensor products. These representations may be obtained from the Ogasawara–Maeda representation by means of restriction to the set on which representing functions are real-valued, rather than infinite. In this note, we show how to obtain such a representation as a simple consequence of the Krein–Kakutani representation of an order unit space. We conclude by studying the representation of Riesz homomorphisms in this setting.
