sequential convergence; convergence ring; completion of a convergence ring
We define various ring sequential convergences on $\mathbb{Z}$ and $\mathbb{Q}$. We describe their properties and properties of their convergence completions. In particular, we define a convergence $\mathbb{L}_1$ on $\mathbb{Z}$ by means of a nonprincipal ultrafilter on the positive prime numbers such that the underlying set of the completion is the ultraproduct of the prime finite fields $\mathbb{Z}/(p)$. Further, we show that $(\mathbb{Z}, \mathbb{L}^\ast _1)$ is sequentially precompact but fails to be strongly sequentially precompact; this solves a problem posed by D. Dikranjan.
