Symmetric relations

Abbreviation: SymRel

Definition

A symmetric relation is a structure $\mathbf{X}=\langle X,R\rangle$ such that $R$ is a binary relation on $X$ (i.e. $R\subseteq X\times X$) that is

symmetric: $xRy\Longrightarrow yRx$

Remark: This is a template. If you know something about this class, click on the Edit text of this page'' link at the bottom and fill out this page.

It is not unusual to give several (equivalent) definitions. Ideally, one of the definitions would give an irredundant axiomatization that does not refer to other classes.

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{X}$ and $\mathbf{Y}$ be symmetric relations. A morphism from $\mathbf{X}$ to $\mathbf{Y}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism: $xR^{\mathbf X} y\Longrightarrow h(x)R^{\mathbf Y}h(y)$
