Order relationI have the following relation: Show that R is partially ordered. Is it totally ordered? My solution: It's not a total order since A relation is partially ordered iff it is reflexive, antisymmetric and transitive. Reflexitivity: . This is a tautology, hence R is reflexive. Symmetry: This statement is true iff x = y. That means R is antisymmetric. Transitivity: Thus R is transitive. Since R is reflexive, antisymmetric and transitive, it is partially ordered. However I'm very unsure on the transitive part. Thanks for help. |
