View source: R/partial.order.R

Description

Construct the partial order table of unique relations of the semigroup, or else of the concepts produced by Galois derivations.

Usage

1
partial.order(x, type = c("strings", "galois"), lbs, labels)

Arguments

x

an object of a 'Strings' or a 'Galois' class

type

whether the object corresponds to strings of relations or Galois derivations

lbs

(optional) the labels of the unique relations

labels

same as lbs for backward compatibility only

Details

To get the partial order of an entire semigroup, both generators and compound relations must be considered. This information and the labels of the unique relations are given by the strings function. cf. semigroup to see how the x should be specified properly.

Galois derivations are now possible to be partially ordered as well, and this option is based on the output given by the galois function.

Value

An object of 'Partial.Order' class with the partial order table in a matrix form.
