Let be a finite Partially Ordered Set. An antichain in is a set of pairwise incomparable elements (e.g., a family of Subsets such that, for any two of them, neither is a Subset of the other). The Width of is the maximum Cardinality of an Antichain in . For a Partial Order, the size of the longest Antichain is called the Width.
