    Re: Partial Order

    This is not the correct place to ask this question. It's not a question about calculus.

    Partial orders are interesting and important because they appear often everywhere in mathematics. Real numbers are ordered by the partial order \leq. Natural numbers are ordered by the same order but also by the order \mid (divisibility). Subsets of any set are ordered by the order \subseteq.
