It is important to know these sets - even if they are the same as each other, as in R4 - different source and target sets can give rise to different relations even when the 'same formula' is used in the definition. 6 The interpretation here is quite straightforward. The dot at intersection of lines representing x 2 and y 1 represents the arrow from 2 to 1 and indicates that (2,1) E Rt.
