A Weak Order Relation is a Transitive Antisymmetric Reflexive Binary Relation.

**AKA:**Weak Partial Ordering.**Context:**- It can be:
- a Total Weak Order Relation if it is a Total Relation.
- a Non-Total Weak Order Relation if it is a Non-Total Relation.

- It can define a Partially Ordered Set.

- It can be:
**Example(s):**- GreaterThanOrEqualTo Relation, (which is also a Total Relation).
- …

**Counter-Example(s):**- GreaterThan Relation, a Strict Partial Order Relation.
- a Partial Order Relation that is not a ... relation.
- a Preorder Relation that is not a ... relation.
