This is a package that performs some usual operations with linear relations in R^n.

Let X and Y be linear spases. A linear relation [1-4] is a linear subspace W in XxY. A linear relation induces a mutivalued operator A:X ->Y. Namely, they say that y in Ax or y=Ax iff (x,y)in W. Usualy, they do not distiguish between W and A and write (x,y) in A instead of (x,y) in W. Any linear operator can be considered as a linear relation if one identifies the operator with its graph.
