There's a lot of higher-level math going on in the background, so you may need some preliminary reading. I highly suggest reading pages 1-5 of these notes, culminating with Theorem 1.4.

It is a very powerful theorem on posets ( partially ordered sets) , and before you attempt to really understand what it means you should probably try and look at one of it' s consequences ,the Erdos- Szekeres theorem for instance and try your hand at proving that one.
