No, reloid (not funcoid) is a filter on a cartesian product of two sets.
Strictly speaking, I define "reloid" as a triple (A;B;F) where A and B are sets and F is a filter on their product AxB.
And funcoids are defined at: http://nlab.mathforge.org/nlab/show/funcoid

What exactly in my writing style is bad? Is it bad English? Is it unclear exposition? Whatever? What should I do to rewrite it in a better way?
Sorry, I (despite of that in the past I was a TeX expert) use TeXmacs not TeX for mathematical writing. Converting it into good LaTeX would be much work.
