Product in a preorder

Is the product of two objectos $a,b$ in a preorder category their infimum $a\wedge b$? I can't assume that their infimum exists, can I?

The notation $a \wedge b$ denotes the infimum, actually. And the product of $a$ and $b$ exists if and only if the infimum exists. Dually, the coproduct exists if and only if the supremum exists. –  John Myers Jan 7 '13 at 16:32
@JohnM: thanks for the comment. –  Barbra. Jan 7 '13 at 16:45
@JohnMyers I edited the question, so now it looks correct –  magma Jan 9 '13 at 3:48

Yes, the product of $a$ and $b$ is $a\land b$, if it exists; however, this is the infimum, not the supremum. As you suspect, it need not exist for arbitrary $a$ and $b$.
