Suppose moreover that each n-component is a dual equivalence graph.
Then for any partition [upsilon] [not equal to] [mu] of n with [upsilon] [subset] [lambda], there exists a unique n-component D [congruent to] [G.
The fact that it restricts to an isomorphism on the n-components follows from the proof of Theorem 3.
