English: This category is functionally similar to mathematical comparison, but nevertheless, more generic and applied. For example the symbol ">" could imply greater than, better than, ahead of, higher than, etc. Often, a distance (for comparison) is calculated by subtraction (in some metric space), but comparison can be based on arbitrary orderings that don't support subtraction or the notion of distance. Moreover, comparison circuitry doesn't belong in a purely mathematical or computing category.
