 for antisymmetric
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  antisymmetric
  
      A relation R is antisymmetric if,
  
      for all x and y,  x R y and y R x  =>  x == y.
  
     I.e. no two different elements are mutually related.
  
     Partial orders and total orders are antisymmetric.  If R
     is also symmetric, i.e.
  
      x R y  =>  y R x
  
     then
  
      x R y  =>  x == y
  
     I.e. different elements are not related.
