This category contains results about Congruence Relations.


Let $\struct {S, \circ}$ be an algebraic structure.

Let $\mathcal R$ be an equivalence relation on $S$.


Then $\mathcal R$ is a congruence relation for $\circ$ if and only if:

$\forall x_1, x_2, y_1, y_2 \in S: \paren {x_1 \mathrel {\mathcal R} x_2} \land \paren {y_1 \mathrel {\mathcal R} y_2} \implies \paren {x_1 \circ y_1} \mathrel {\mathcal R} \paren {x_2 \circ y_2}$
