Functionsumo#list_fn(* -> sumo#list)a function that takes any number of arguments and returns the list containing those arguments in exactly the same ordertype: pm#function_typeterm-forming relation that maps from a n-tuple of arguments to a range and that associates this n-tuple with at most one range element; note that the range is a set_or_class, and each element of the range is an instance of the set_or_classtype: pm#total_valued_relation_typewhen there exists an assignment for the last argument position of the relation given any assignment of values to every argument position except the last one; note that declaring a relation to be both a total_valued_relation and a single_valued_relation means that it is a total functiontype: pm#variable_arity_relation_typeclass of relations that do not have a fixed number of argumentssupertype: 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#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_type
