Definition: 

Relation structure of categories within a collection. Allows for the specification of complex relationships among categories.

Explanatory Notes: 

The CategoryRelationStructure employs a set of CategoryRelations to describe the relationship among concepts. Each CategoryRelation is a one to many description of connections between categories. Together they might commonly describe relationships as complex as a hierarchy.
This is a kind of a ConceptRelationStructure restricted to categories (which are concepts).

Example: 
The category of student might be described as having sub-types of primary school student and high school student.
