Relationsumo#exhaustive_decomposition(sumo#class,sumo#class+)an exhaustive_decomposition of a class C is a set of subclasses of C such that every instance of C is an instance of one of the subclasses in the set; note: this does not necessarily mean that the elements of the set are disjoint (see sumo#partition - a partition is a disjoint exhaustive decomposition)subtype: sumo#partition (pm)a partition of a class C is a set of mutually disjoint classes (a subclass partition) covering C; each instance of C is instance of exactly one of the subclasses in the partitionrelated_to: owl#union_of type: pm#predicate_type__predicatetypea sentence-forming relation with each tuple being a finite, ordered sequence of objectstype: pm#variable_arity_relation_typeclass of relations that do not have a fixed number of argumentssupertype: pm#relation_to_another_class (rdfs#class,rdfs#class+) supertype: pm#relation_from_class_to_collection (rdfs#class,pm#collection) supertype: pm#relation_from_type_to_collection (pm#type,pm#collection) supertype: pm#relation_between_collections (pm#collection,pm#collection+) supertype: pm#relation_from_collection (pm#collection,*) supertype: pm#relation_from/to_thing_of_common_kind (*)this type permits to categorize relations according to their signatures and hence offers (i) a concise way to set essential exclusion relations, and (ii) a systematic and easy-to-follow categorizationsupertype: pm#relation__related_thing__relatedthing___related_with (*)type for any relation (unary, binary, ..., *-ary) and instance of pm#relation_typesupertype: pm#what_relation (*) supertype: pm#wh-/how_relation (*)this type permits to categorize relations according to the usual who/what/why/where/when/how questions ; this is a traditional but very subjective and ineffective way of categorizing relationssupertype: pm#relation__related_thing__relatedthing___related_with (*)type for any relation (unary, binary, ..., *-ary) and instance of pm#relation_typesupertype: pm#relation_to_collection (*,pm#collection) supertype: pm#relation_from/to_thing_of_common_kind (*)this type permits to categorize relations according to their signatures and hence offers (i) a concise way to set essential exclusion relations, and (ii) a systematic and easy-to-follow categorizationsupertype: pm#what_relation (*) supertype: pm#relation_from_type (pm#type,*)type of relations from a concept/relation type, i.e. in RDFS terminology, from a class or a propertysupertype: pm#relation_from_collection (pm#collection,*) supertype: pm#relation_from_class (rdfs#class,*) supertype: pm#relation_from_type (pm#type,*)type of relations from a concept/relation type, i.e. in RDFS terminology, from a class or a propertysupertype: pm#relation_to_another_set_or_class (pm#set_or_class,pm#set_or_class+)this category is needed to group SUMO relations between classes which cannot be subtype of pm#relation_from_type because their signatures curiously also involve setssupertype: pm#relation_between_collections (pm#collection,pm#collection+) supertype: pm#relation_to_set_or_class (*,pm#set_or_class) supertype: pm#relation_to_collection (*,pm#collection)
