Summary description: Provides a symbol set for describing relations
between ordered pairs

Announcement text:

Around 2008, researcher Byron Cook and several colleagues began
developing a new set of interrelated algorithms capable of
automatically reasoning about the behavior of computer programs and
other systems (such as biological systems, circuit designs, etc). At
the center of these algorithms were new ideas about the relationships
between structures expressable as mathematical sets and relations.
Using the language of mathematics and logic, the researchers
communicated these new results to others in their community via
published papers, research talks, etc. Unfortunately, they found the
symbols already available for reasoning about relations lacking (in
contrast to sets, which have a long-ago developed and robust symbol
vocabulary). Early presentations were unnecessarily cluttered. To more
elegantly express these ideas around relations, Cook recruited artist
Tauba Auerbach to help develop a set of symbols. This package provides
a math symbol font for describing relations betwee! n ordered pairs.
