This category contains results about Upper Closures in the context of Order Theory.
Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Upper Closures.


Let $\left({S, \preccurlyeq}\right)$ be an ordered set.

Let $a \in S$.


The upper closure of $a$ (in $S$) is defined as:

$a^\succcurlyeq := \left\{{b \in S: a \preccurlyeq b}\right\}$


That is, $a^\succcurlyeq$ is the set of all elements of $S$ that succeed $a$.
