A total order, or a linear order, is a poset P such that for every two elements x and y in P the disjunction (x ≤ y) ∨ (y ≤ x) holds. In other words, total orders are totally ordered in the sense that any two elements are comparable.


Being a totally ordered poset

module _
  {l1 l2 : Level} (X : Poset l1 l2)

  incident-Poset-Prop : (x y : type-Poset X)  Prop l2
  incident-Poset-Prop = incident-Preorder-Prop (preorder-Poset X)

  incident-Poset : (x y : type-Poset X)  UU l2
  incident-Poset = incident-Preorder (preorder-Poset X)

  is-prop-incident-Poset :
    (x y : type-Poset X)  is-prop (incident-Poset x y)
  is-prop-incident-Poset = is-prop-incident-Preorder (preorder-Poset X)

  is-total-Poset-Prop : Prop (l1  l2)
  is-total-Poset-Prop = is-total-Preorder-Prop (preorder-Poset X)

  is-total-Poset : UU (l1  l2)
  is-total-Poset = is-total-Preorder (preorder-Poset X)

  is-prop-is-total-Poset : is-prop is-total-Poset
  is-prop-is-total-Poset = is-prop-is-total-Preorder (preorder-Poset X)

The type of total orders

Total-Order : (l1 l2 : Level)  UU (lsuc l1  lsuc l2)
Total-Order l1 l2 = Σ (Poset l1 l2) is-total-Poset

module _
  {l1 l2 : Level} (X : Total-Order l1 l2)

  poset-Total-Order : Poset l1 l2
  poset-Total-Order = pr1 X

  preorder-Total-Order : Preorder l1 l2
  preorder-Total-Order = preorder-Poset poset-Total-Order

  is-total-Total-Order : is-total-Poset (poset-Total-Order)
  is-total-Total-Order = pr2 X

  type-Total-Order : UU l1
  type-Total-Order = type-Poset poset-Total-Order

  leq-Total-Order-Prop : (x y : type-Total-Order)  Prop l2
  leq-Total-Order-Prop = leq-Poset-Prop poset-Total-Order

  leq-Total-Order : (x y : type-Total-Order)  UU l2
  leq-Total-Order = leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  is-prop-leq-Total-Order :
    (x y : type-Total-Order)  is-prop (leq-Total-Order x y)
  is-prop-leq-Total-Order = is-prop-leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  concatenate-eq-leq-Total-Order :
    {x y z : type-Total-Order}  x  y 
    leq-Total-Order y z  leq-Total-Order x z
  concatenate-eq-leq-Total-Order = concatenate-eq-leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  concatenate-leq-eq-Total-Order :
    {x y z : type-Total-Order} 
    leq-Total-Order x y  y  z  leq-Total-Order x z
  concatenate-leq-eq-Total-Order = concatenate-leq-eq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  refl-leq-Total-Order : is-reflexive leq-Total-Order
  refl-leq-Total-Order = refl-leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  transitive-leq-Total-Order : is-transitive leq-Total-Order
  transitive-leq-Total-Order = transitive-leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  antisymmetric-leq-Total-Order : is-antisymmetric leq-Total-Order
  antisymmetric-leq-Total-Order = antisymmetric-leq-Poset poset-Total-Order

  is-set-type-Total-Order : is-set type-Total-Order
  is-set-type-Total-Order = is-set-type-Poset poset-Total-Order
