A total preorder is a preorder P such that for every two elements x y : P the disjunction (x ≤ y) ∨ (y ≤ x) holds. In other words, total preorders are totally ordered in the sense that any two elements can be compared.


Being a total preorder

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

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

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

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

  is-total-Preorder-Prop : Prop (l1  l2)
  is-total-Preorder-Prop =
      ( type-Preorder X)
      ( λ x  Π-Prop ( type-Preorder X)  y  incident-Preorder-Prop x y))

  is-total-Preorder : UU (l1  l2)
  is-total-Preorder = type-Prop is-total-Preorder-Prop

  is-prop-is-total-Preorder : is-prop is-total-Preorder
  is-prop-is-total-Preorder = is-prop-type-Prop is-total-Preorder-Prop

The type of total preorder

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

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

  preorder-Total-Preorder : Preorder l1 l2
  preorder-Total-Preorder = pr1 X

  is-total-preorder-Total-Preorder : is-total-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder
  is-total-preorder-Total-Preorder = pr2 X

  type-Total-Preorder : UU l1
  type-Total-Preorder = type-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder

  leq-Total-Preorder-Prop : (x y : type-Total-Preorder)  Prop l2
  leq-Total-Preorder-Prop = leq-Preorder-Prop preorder-Total-Preorder

  leq-Total-Preorder : (x y : type-Total-Preorder)  UU l2
  leq-Total-Preorder = leq-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder

  is-prop-leq-Total-Preorder :
    (x y : type-Total-Preorder)  is-prop (leq-Total-Preorder x y)
  is-prop-leq-Total-Preorder = is-prop-leq-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder

  refl-leq-Total-Preorder : is-reflexive leq-Total-Preorder
  refl-leq-Total-Preorder = refl-leq-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder

  transitive-leq-Total-Preorder : is-transitive leq-Total-Preorder
  transitive-leq-Total-Preorder =
    transitive-leq-Preorder preorder-Total-Preorder
