Partial well-ordering of sets of vectors

  • R. Rado (a1)

Graham Higman (1) has investigated quasi-order [(2), p. 4] relations ab on a set S which, in his terminology, have the following finite basis property:

If AS, then there is a finite set BA such that, given any a α A, there is some b α B satisfying ba.
