Definition 11. A binary relation on X is an interval order if for all w, x, y, and z ∈ X, w y and x z ⇒ w z or x y. The set of interval orders over X will be denoted by I. Definition 12. A binary relation on X is a semiorder if it is an interval order and if for all w, x, y, and z ∈ X, w x and x y ⇒ w z or z y. The set of semiorders will be denoted by S. These two concepts have mainly been introduced in measurement theory to deal with possible intransitive indifference. Although indifference is not necessarily transitive contrary to what is the case with preorders, it should be noted that, for both concepts, is transitive (see Fishburn (1985) and Suppes, Krantz, Luce, and Tversky (1989)).
