**ordering relation**— A partial ordering on a set is a relation < that is transitive and reflexive and antisymmetric. That is, (i) x < y & y < z →x < z ; (ii) x < x ; (iii) x < y & y < x →x = y . If we add (iv) that at least one of x < y, x = y … Philosophy dictionary**Linear extension**— In order theory, a branch of mathematics, a linear extension of a partial order is a linear order (or total order) that is compatible with the partial order.
