Equivalence Relation

  • Definition: An equivalence relation on a set A is a relation C on A having the following three properties: 1) (Reflexivity) xCx for every x in A. 2) (Symmetry) If xCy, then yCx. 3) (Transitivity) If xCy and yCz, then xCz.

  • Example: Over the integers, the relation x = y mod 10 is an equivalence relation.
