One-many relations may be defined as relations such that, if r has the relation in question to y, there is no other term r' which also has the relation to y. Or, again, they may be defined as follows : Given two terms r and r', the terms to which r has the given relation and those to which r' has it have no member in common. Ot, again, they may be defined as relations such that the relative product of one of them and its converse implies identity, where the " relative product " of two relations R and S is that relation which holds between x and z when there is an intermediate term y, such that r has the relation R to y and y has the relation S to z.

CHAPTERV KINDS OF RELATIONS A cnsar part of the philosophyof mathematicsis concernedwith relations, and many difierent kinds of relations have difierenr kinds of uses. It often happens that a property which belongs to all relations is only important as regards relations of certain sorts; in these casesthe reader will not see the bearing of the proposition assertingsuch a property unlesshe has in mind the sorts of relations for which it is useful. For reasons of this description,as well as from the intrinsic interest of the subject, it is well to have in our minds a rough list of the more mathematically serviceable varieties of relations.

To such as permit of the formation of a single class out of the domain and the converse domain. This is not always the case. e. the relation which the domain of a relation has to the relation. This relation has all classesfor its domain, since every class is the domain of some relation; and it has all relations for its converse domain, since every relation has a domain. " We do not need to enter upon the difficult doctrine of types, but it is well to know when we are abstaining from entering upon it.
