Definition crelation (A : Type) := A -> A -> Type.

Definition arrow (A B : Type) := A -> B.

Definition flip {A B C : Type} (f : A -> B -> C) := fun x y => f y x.

Definition iffT (A B : Type) := ((A -> B) * (B -> A))%type.

We allow to unfold the crelation definition while doing morphism search.

Section Defs.
  Context {A : Type}.

We rebind crelational properties in separate classes to be able to overload each proof.

  Class Reflexive (R : crelation A) :=
    reflexivity : forall x : A, R x x.

  Definition complement (R : crelation A) : crelation A :=
    fun x y => R x y -> False.

Opaque for proof-search.
  Typeclasses Opaque complement iffT.

These are convertible.
  Lemma complement_inverse R : complement (flip R) = flip (complement R).

  Class Irreflexive (R : crelation A) :=
    irreflexivity : Reflexive (complement R).

  Class Symmetric (R : crelation A) :=
    symmetry : forall {x y}, R x y -> R y x.

  Class Asymmetric (R : crelation A) :=
    asymmetry : forall {x y}, R x y -> (complement R y x : Type).

  Class Transitive (R : crelation A) :=
    transitivity : forall {x y z}, R x y -> R y z -> R x z.

Various combinations of reflexivity, symmetry and transitivity.
A PreOrder is both Reflexive and Transitive.

  Class PreOrder (R : crelation A) := {
    PreOrder_Reflexive :> Reflexive R | 2 ;
    PreOrder_Transitive :> Transitive R | 2 }.

A StrictOrder is both Irreflexive and Transitive.
By definition, a strict order is also asymmetric
  Global Instance StrictOrder_Asymmetric `(StrictOrder R) : Asymmetric R.

A partial equivalence crelation is Symmetric and Transitive.

  Class PER (R : crelation A) := {
    PER_Symmetric :> Symmetric R | 3 ;
    PER_Transitive :> Transitive R | 3 }.

Equivalence crelations.
An Equivalence is a PER plus reflexivity.

  Global Instance Equivalence_PER {R} `(Equivalence R) : PER R | 10 :=
    { PER_Symmetric := Equivalence_Symmetric ;
      PER_Transitive := Equivalence_Transitive }.

We can now define antisymmetry w.r.t. an equivalence crelation on the carrier.

  Class Antisymmetric eqA `{equ : Equivalence eqA} (R : crelation A) :=
    antisymmetry : forall {x y}, R x y -> R y x -> eqA x y.

  Class subrelation (R R' : crelation A) :=
    is_subrelation : forall {x y}, R x y -> R' x y.

Any symmetric crelation is equal to its inverse.

  Lemma subrelation_symmetric R `(Symmetric R) : subrelation (flip R) R.

  Section flip.

    Lemma flip_Reflexive `{Reflexive R} : Reflexive (flip R).

    Program Definition flip_Irreflexive `(Irreflexive R) : Irreflexive (flip R) :=
      irreflexivity (R:=R).

    Program Definition flip_Symmetric `(Symmetric R) : Symmetric (flip R) :=
      fun x y H => symmetry (R:=R) H.

    Program Definition flip_Asymmetric `(Asymmetric R) : Asymmetric (flip R) :=
      fun x y H H' => asymmetry (R:=R) H H'.

    Program Definition flip_Transitive `(Transitive R) : Transitive (flip R) :=
      fun x y z H H' => transitivity (R:=R) H' H.

    Program Definition flip_Antisymmetric `(Antisymmetric eqA R) :
      Antisymmetric eqA (flip R).

Inversing the larger structures

    Lemma flip_PreOrder `(PreOrder R) : PreOrder (flip R).

    Lemma flip_StrictOrder `(StrictOrder R) : StrictOrder (flip R).

    Lemma flip_PER `(PER R) : PER (flip R).

    Lemma flip_Equivalence `(Equivalence R) : Equivalence (flip R).

  End flip.

  Section complement.

    Definition complement_Irreflexive `(Reflexive R)
      : Irreflexive (complement R).

    Definition complement_Symmetric `(Symmetric R) : Symmetric (complement R).
  End complement.

Rewrite crelation on a given support: declares a crelation as a rewrite crelation for use by the generalized rewriting tactic. It helps choosing if a rewrite should be handled by the generalized or the regular rewriting tactic using leibniz equality. Users can declare an RewriteRelation A RA anywhere to declare default crelations. This is also done automatically by the Declare Relation A RA commands.

  Class RewriteRelation (RA : crelation A).

Any Equivalence declared in the context is automatically considered a rewrite crelation.

  Global Instance equivalence_rewrite_crelation `(Equivalence eqA) : RewriteRelation eqA.
  Defined.

Leibniz equality.
  Section Leibniz.
    Global Instance eq_Reflexive : Reflexive (@eq A) := @eq_refl A.
    Global Instance eq_Symmetric : Symmetric (@eq A) := @eq_sym A.
    Global Instance eq_Transitive : Transitive (@eq A) := @eq_trans A.

Leibinz equality eq is an equivalence crelation. The instance has low priority as it is always applicable if only the type is constrained.

  End Leibniz.

End Defs.

We now develop a generalization of results on crelations for arbitrary predicates. The resulting theory can be applied to homogeneous binary crelations but also to arbitrary n-ary predicates.

Relation equivalence is an equivalence, and subrelation defines a partial order.

Partial Order.

A partial order is a preorder which is additionally antisymmetric. We give an equivalent definition, up-to an equivalence crelation on the carrier.
The equivalence proof is sufficient for proving that R must be a morphism for equivalence (see Morphisms). It is also sufficient to show that R is antisymmetric w.r.t. eqA
