T h e motivation for the present paper comes from a more general class of problems involving partially ordered sets. I n [ 3 ] , Greene and Kleitman considered subsets of a partially ordered set Ρ which contain no chains of length k -f- 1 (or equivalently, subsets obtained by taking the union of k antichains). A subset with this property is called a k-family (or an antichain if k = 1).
