When, in the preceding chapter, we had pairs (and so iterated also tuples), we immediately proceeded to handling binary mappings with relational means. This concerned the very general concepts such as being commutative, distributive, or associative. A more specific law concerns absorption mainly occurring in one traditional environment, namely for binary meets and joins. They will be handled here accordingly when the following cone mappings are available.
