Definition

Let $S$ be a set, and let $\left({T, \preceq}\right)$ be an ordered set.

Let $f, g: S \to T$ be mappings.


Then $f$ pointwise precedes $g$, denoted $f \preceq g$, if and only if:

$\forall s \in S: f \left({s}\right) \preceq g \left({s}\right)$


Thence it can be seen that pointwise precedence is an instance of an induced relation on mappings.
