Lub may refer to:
Supremum, least upper bound.
In mathematics, the supremum (sup) of a subset ''S'' of a totally or partially ordered set ''T'' is the least element of ''T'' that is ''greater than or equal to'' all elements of ''S''. Consequently, the supremum is also referred to as the least upper bound (lub or LUB). If the supremum exists, it is unique, meaning that there will be only one supremum. If ''S'' contains a greatest element, then that element is the supremum; otherwise, the supremum does not belong to ''S'' (or does not exist). For instance, the negative real numbers do not have a greatest element, and their supremum is 0 (which is not a negative real number).
