Definition:Strictly Increasing/Mapping

From ProofWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Let $\struct {S, \preceq_1}$ and $\struct {T, \preceq_2}$ be ordered sets.

Let $\phi: \struct {S, \preceq_1} \to \struct {T, \preceq_2}$ be a mapping.

Then $\phi$ is strictly increasing if and only if:

$\forall x, y \in S: x \prec_1 y \implies \map \phi x \prec_2 \map \phi y$

Note that this definition also holds if $S = T$.

A strictly increasing mapping is also known as a strictly isotone mapping.
