A poset contains two pieces a set and a partial order. A set is a collection of things
and a partial order is the ranking of things. A poset consists of a set together with a binary
relation that indicates that, for certain a pair of elements in the set, one of the elements precedes
the other. The binary relation of set P is antisymmetric, transitive, and reflexive. For all a, b, and
c in P, we have that: for all in P (reflexivity); if and then (antisymmetry); if and then
