Bandler - Kohout compositions of relation; mixed associativity
This paper considers compositions of relations based on the notion of the afterset and the foreset, i. e., the subproduct, the superproduct and the square product introduced by Bandler and Kohout with modification proposed by De Baets and Kerre. There are proven all possible mixed pseudo-associativity properties of Bandler – Kohout compositions of relations.
