rel_is_asymmetric {agop}R Documentation

Asymetric Binary Relations

Description

A binary relation R is asymmetric, iff for all x, y we have xRy => !yRx.

Usage

rel_is_asymmetric(R)

Arguments

R

an object coercible to a 0-1 (logical) square matrix, representing a binary relation on a finite set.

Details

Note that an asymmetric relation is necessarily irreflexive, compare rel_is_irreflexive.

rel_is_asymmetric finds out if a given binary relation is asymmetric. Missing values in R may result in NA.

Also, check out rel_closure_symmetric for the symmetric closure of R.

Value

rel_is_asymmetric returns a single logical value.
