  Relation (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Relations that involve two 'places' or 'roles' are called binary relations by some and dyadic relations by others, the latter being historically prior but also useful when necessary to avoid confusion with binary (base 2) numerals.
From the more abstract viewpoints of formal logic and model theory, the relation L is seen as constituting a logical model or a relational structure that serves as one of many possible interpretations of a corresponding k-place predicate symbol, as that term is used in predicate calculus.
Another variation reserves the term 'relation' to the corresponding logical entity, either the logical comprehension, which is the totality of intensions or abstract properties that all of the elements of the relation in extension have in common, or else the symbols that are taken to denote these elements and intensions.

 Legal Definition of Relation
These relations took place when the judge had no law to direct him, or when the laws were susceptible of difficulties; it was then referred to the prince, who was the author of the law, to give the interpretation.
A legacy to "relations" generally, or to "relations by blood or marriage," without enumerating any of them, will, therefore, entitle to a share, such of the testator's relatives as would be entitled under the statute of distribution's in the event of intestacy.
Relations to either of the parties, even beyond the ninth degree, have been holden incapable to serve on juries.

 Transitive Relation Encyclopedia Article, Information, History and Biography @ Encyclopedia.LocalColorArt.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
In mathematics, a binary relation R over a set X is transitive if it holds for all a, b, and c in X, that if a is related to b and b is related to c, then a is related to c.
Unlike other relation properties, it is not possible to find a general formula that counts the number of transitive relations on a finite set.

 Relative Identity
For example, the relation x and y are the same size is an equivalence relation that does not satisfy LL (with respect to a rich language such as English).
The indiscernibility relation defined by the identity symbol in M may differ from the one it defines in M′; and in particular, the latter may be more "fine-grained" than the former.
The noun ‘passenger’ is derived from the corresponding relational expression ‘passenger in (on) …’.

 The Epistemic Basing Relation
The basing relation is what distinguishes good reasons which a person possesses that contribute to the personal justification of a given belief from good reasons which the person possesses but that do not contribute to the personal justification of the belief.
Doxastic theories of the basing relation hold that having an appropriate meta-belief to the effect that a reason is a good reason to hold a belief is sufficient for the belief's being based on the reason.
The basing relation is presumably a unified epistemic concept calling for a unified analysis, not a haphazard conglomeration of different conditions, as a disjunctive analysis of the basing relation as either causes or meta-beliefs would suggest.

Consequently the relation from the theoretical point of view is here merely ideal; that is, it is a relation to an object of thought which we form for ourselves.
Now, the subjective nature of our representations might be of such a kind that they could be related to objects so as to furnish knowledge of them, either in regard to their form or matter- in the former relation by pure perception, in the latter by sensation proper.
In relation to us as human beings, with an activity of will modified by sensible influences so as not to be conformable to the pure will, but as often contrary to it, these laws appear as imperatives commanding or prohibiting certain actions; and as such they are categorical or unconditional imperatives.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Relation of God to the Universe
And the relation of Creator to created remains the same even though the possibility of eternal creation be admitted; the Infinite must be the producer of the finite even though it be impossible to fix a time at which production may not already have taken place.
God is immanent, or intimately present, in the universe because His power is required at every moment to sustain creatures in being and to concur with them in their activities.
Conservation and concursus are so to speak, continuations of creative activity, and imply an equally intimate relation of God towards creatures, or rather an equally intimate and unceasing dependence of creatures on God.

 VELOCITY OF LIGHT
Because the detector could move at any relative velocity (within determined borders) in relation to the source there follows that there is always certain light that in relation to the detector’s inertial system has the speed c with which the detector interacts.
Relative velocity of the light spectrum in its relation to the observer is equal to the vector related difference of the velocities of both, light spectrum and the observer in their relation to the referential system.*
The observer could be moving with any speed (from the interval (1)) in the relation to the source, but every time in relation to him there will exist some light that has the speed c.

 Defining N-ary Relations on the Semantic Web: Use With Individuals
A common solution to representing n-ary relations such as these is to create an individual which stands for an instance of the relation and relates the things that are involved in that instance of the relation.
In the second case (pattern 2), the n-ary relation represents a network of participants that all play different roles in the relation, but two or more of the participants have equal "importance" in the relation.
In most intended interpretations, this relation cannot be viewed as a binary relation with additional attributes attached to it.

The method relies on the fact that there is a relationship between the rate at which a spiral galaxy spins and its intrinsic luminosity.
The sense of the relation is that the faster a galaxy spins, the more luminous is the galaxy.
This is borne out by the Tully-Fisher relation, the empirically deduced relation between spin-rate and luminosity.

When that subset contains observed or permissible cooccurrences, its complement in the same product set is called a constraint and contains conceivable cooccurrances that did not occur or are excluded.
binary relations are of order two, etc. Relations may be combined to form new relations, e.g., the simple ternary relation of "off-spring" which relates a father, a mother and a child can be used recursively (see recursion) to generate a whole family tree.
More than one relation may be defined in the same Cartesian product set as the relations "talked to", "is married to", "exchanged goods with" all of which are subsets of the product of two sets of people.

 Functions Lesson - I
In relations and functions, the pairs of names and heights are "ordered", which means one comes first and the other comes second.
Functions are a sub-classification of relations.) When we say that a function is "a well-behaved relation", we mean that, given a starting point, we know exactly where to go.
Let's return to our relation of your classmates and their heights, and let's suppose that the domain is the set of everybody's heights.

The standard definition of inbreeding is that it is any scheme which results in the sire and the dam having common ancestors.
Many breeders use the term "inbreeding" for close relatives and "linebreeding" for more distantly related individuals, but there is no fundamental difference.
You are, therefore, bound to find some common ancestors if you go back far enough.) Conversely, it is possible to mate two closely related dogs, both of which have low ICs, and boost the IC substantially.
