Dear araku


An upper bound of a subset S of some partially ordered set ( P, ≤) is an element of P which is greater than or equal to every element of S. The term lower bound is defined dually as an element of P which is lesser than or equal to every element of S. A set with an upper bound is said to be bounded from above by that bound, a set with a lower bound is said to be bounded from below by that bound. Properties A subset S of a partially ordered set P may fail to have any bounds or may have many different upper and lower bounds. By transitivity, any element greater than or equal to an upper bound of S is again an upper bound of S, and any element lesser than or equal to any lower bound of S is again a lower bound of S. This leads to the consideration of least upper bound s: (or suprema) and greatest lower bound s (or infima). The bounds of a subset S of a partially ordered set P may or may..


lets analyse above difinition with example.


suppose we have a set  { 5, 10, 34, 13934 }   then  2 and 5 are both lower bounds for the set . but 8 is not


lets another set {24} ,42 is both upper and lower bound for the set and all other numbers are either an upper bound or a lower bound for that set.
