I am studying economics and I frequently encounter Binary Relations. But without any good knowledge of it, I get confused.
Here is some background, if it's helpful:
I know calculus(single and multi-variable). I have taken semester-long rigorous(definition-theorem-proof style) courses in optimization theory, linear algebra, probability theory and statistics. But, I am not very good at writing proofs myself.
I will be obliged if I will get some good text teaching me binary relations as google does not help me.
As required in comments, I add pages from a microeconomics text. Here is preface requiring a course in abstract algebra that focuses mainly on binary relations. here is first chapter of that book which uses binary relations. I hope these links will be helpful. I feel handicapped while doing exercises with binary relations. So please suggest me what shall I do.
