# The `causets`

package

The LaTeX package `causets`

lets you create (Hasse) diagrams of causal sets. Causal sets (causets) are locally finite, partially ordered sets and are consider as a framework for quantum gravity. This package is built on the package `tikz`

, which is usually included in the standard LaTeX installations and loaded automatically with `\usepackage{causets}`

.

The diagrams can be used inline with text or mathematical expressions, or they may be included in a TikZ pictures. The three main commands (macros) are

% causet generated from a permutation: \pcauset{..,i,..,j,..} % causet generated from a permutation, but some links are removed: \rcauset{..,i,..,j,..}{..,i/j,..} % causet with events positioned by a permutation, links are specified explicitly: \causet{..,i,..,j,..}{..,i/j,..}

For a full documentation, please see causets.pdf. The documentation includes some examples. More examples are included at https://github.com/c-minz/LaTeX-causets/tree/main/examples

## causets – Draw causal set (Hasse) diagrams

This LaTeX package uses TikZ
to generate (Hasse) diagrams for causal sets (causets)
to be used inline with text or in mathematical expressions.
The macros can also be used in the `tikzpicture` environment
to annotate or modify a diagram, as shown with some examples
in the documentation.
