Use the algorithm given in the text find a topological sorting for the relation of exercise 16(a) that is different from the “less than or equal to” relation .
A topological sorting for the “divides” relation on the set
Hasse Diagram: It is a mathematical diagram representing a partially ordered set with finite number or members involving transitive reduction.
The set has one minimal element , so you can pick . The beginning of the total order is , with a total order of .
Set . You can indicate this by removing from the Hasse diagram as shown below.
Next, choose a minimal element from . Thus, there are two minimal elements .
Either one may be chosen, pick . The total order thus far is total order .
