## Inclusion Rule

### Description

Checks if a family of sets fulfills the inclusion rule.

### Usage

inclusion.rule(A)

### Arguments

 A a list of vectors consisting of the stimulus aspects of an elimination-by-aspects model

### Details

The inclusion rule is necessary and sufficient for a tree structure on the aspect sets:

Structure theorem. A family \{x' | x \in T\} of aspect sets is representable by a tree iff either x' \cap y' \supset x' \cap z' or x' \cap z' \supset x' \cap y' for all x, y, z in T. (Tversky and Sattath, 1979, p. 546)

### Value

Either TRUE if the inclusion rule holds for A, or FALSE otherwise.
