Purpose

Holds if, for each pair of objects $\left({O}_{i},{O}_{j}\right)$, $i\ne j$, ${O}_{i}$ and ${O}_{j}$ meet with respect to a set of dimensions depicted by $\mathrm{𝙳𝙸𝙼𝚂}$. Each shape is defined as a finite set of shifted boxes, where each shifted box is described by a box in a $𝙺$-dimensional space at a given offset (from the origin of the shape) with given sizes. More precisely, a shifted box is an entity defined by its shape id $\mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}$, shift offset $𝚝$, and sizes $𝚕$. Then, a shape is defined as the union of shifted boxes sharing the same shape id. An object is an entity defined by its unique object identifier $\mathrm{𝚘𝚒𝚍}$, shape id $\mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}$ and origin $𝚡$.

Two objects ${O}_{i}$ and object ${O}_{j}$ meet with respect to a set of dimensions depicted by $\mathrm{𝙳𝙸𝙼𝚂}$ if and only if the two following conditions hold:

• For all shifted box ${s}_{i}$ associated with ${O}_{i}$ and for all shifted box ${s}_{j}$ associated with ${O}_{j}$ there exists a dimension $d\in \mathrm{𝙳𝙸𝙼𝚂}$ such that (1) the start of ${s}_{i}$ in dimension $d$ is greater than or equal to the end of ${s}_{j}$ in dimension $d$, or (2) the start of ${s}_{j}$ in dimension $d$ is greater than or equal to the end of ${s}_{i}$ in dimension $d$ (i.e., there is no overlap between the shifted box of ${O}_{i}$ and the shifted box of ${O}_{j}$).

• There exists a shifted box ${s}_{i}$ of ${O}_{i}$ and there exists a shifted box ${s}_{j}$ of ${O}_{j}$ such that for all dimensions $d$ (1) the end of ${s}_{i}$ in dimension $d$ is greater than or equal to the start of ${s}_{j}$ in dimension $d$, and (2) the end of ${s}_{j}$ in dimension $d$ is greater than or equal to the start of ${s}_{i}$ in dimension $d$ (i.e., at least two shifted box of ${O}_{i}$ and ${O}_{j}$ are in contact).

Example
$\left(\begin{array}{c}2,\left\{0,1\right\},\hfill \\ 〈\begin{array}{ccc}\mathrm{𝚘𝚒𝚍}-1\hfill & \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-1\hfill & 𝚡-〈3,2〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚘𝚒𝚍}-2\hfill & \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-2\hfill & 𝚡-〈4,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚘𝚒𝚍}-3\hfill & \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-4\hfill & 𝚡-〈3,4〉\hfill \end{array}〉,\hfill \\ 〈\begin{array}{ccc}\mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-1\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,0〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,2〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-2\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,0〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-2\hfill & 𝚝-〈1,0〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,3〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-2\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,2〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-3\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,0〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈3,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-3\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,1〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-3\hfill & 𝚝-〈2,1〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,1〉,\hfill \\ \mathrm{𝚜𝚒𝚍}-4\hfill & 𝚝-〈0,0〉\hfill & 𝚕-〈1,1〉\hfill \end{array}〉\hfill \end{array}\right)$

Figure 5.251.1 shows the objects of the example. Since all the pairs of objects meet the $\mathrm{𝚖𝚎𝚎𝚝}_\mathrm{𝚜𝚋𝚘𝚡𝚎𝚜}$ constraint holds.

##### Figure 5.251.1. (D) the three pairwise meeting objects ${O}_{1}$, ${O}_{2}$, ${O}_{3}$ of the Example slot respectively assigned shapes ${S}_{1}$, ${S}_{2}$, ${S}_{4}$; (A), (B), (C) shapes ${S}_{1}$, ${S}_{2}$, ${S}_{3}$ and ${S}_{4}$ are respectively made up from 1, 3, 3 and 1 disjoint shifted box. Typical
$|\mathrm{𝙾𝙱𝙹𝙴𝙲𝚃𝚂}|>1$
Symmetries

• Items of $\mathrm{𝚂𝙱𝙾𝚇𝙴𝚂}$ are permutable.

• Items of $\mathrm{𝙾𝙱𝙹𝙴𝙲𝚃𝚂}.𝚡$, $\mathrm{𝚂𝙱𝙾𝚇𝙴𝚂}.𝚝$ and $\mathrm{𝚂𝙱𝙾𝚇𝙴𝚂}.𝚕$ are permutable (same permutation used).
