Definition: Extensional Relation

Let $V$ be a set and let $R\subseteq V\times V$ be a binary relation. $R$ is called extensional if all elements of $x\in V$ are uniquely determined by ordered pairs $(z,x)\in R,$ formally

$$\{z\in V\mid zRx\}=\{z\in V\mid zRy\} \Rightarrow x=y,$$

or, by contraposition,

$$\{z\in V\mid zRx\}\neq \{z\in V\mid zRy\} \Rightarrow x\neq y.$$
