Let the set S = {a, b, c, d, e}. Draw the diagram of a partial order with two maximal elements on the set S.
My question is what does it mean to be a maximal element here?
A maximal element has no successor. A maximal element proceeds no other element.
In the diagram a & b are maximal.
if you have a partially ordered set then an element is called a maximum element of if implies that for example, in your set, we can put this partial order:
(of course is also a part of definition.) see that is the set of maximal elements of
