Set Theory and Metric Spaces

This booklet is predicated on notes from a path on set concept and metric areas taught by way of Edwin Spanier, and in addition contains together with his permission various routines from these notes. The quantity comprises an Appendix that is helping bridge the distance among metric and topological areas, a specific Bibliography, and an Index.

Set Theory-An Operational Approach

Offers a singular method of set idea that's totally operational. This process avoids the existential axioms linked to conventional Zermelo-Fraenkel set idea, and offers either a beginning for set conception and a realistic method of studying the topic.

The set of all positive odd numbers: U = {1,3,5,7,9,11,…}. The set of all prime numbers: P = {2,3,5,7,11,…}. The set of squares of all integers: Q = {1,4,9,16,25,…}. The set of all integers: Z = {0,1,–1,2,–2,…}. The set of all rational numbers: The set of all algebraic numbers: The set of all lattice points on a straight line: Gg. The set of all lattice points on a plane: Ge. For all of these sets we have the inclusion relations: All of these sets are equivalent: All of these sets have the same cardinal number; they are all denumerable: (b) Sets with the cardinal number of the continuum: The set of all real numbers in the interval 0 < r < 1:.

It is therefore not surprising to find that the set of all differentiable functions also has the cardinal number of the continuum, but on the other hand, the set of all integrable functions has the cardinal number f of the set of all* functions, F. The differentiable functions are again the “exceptional cases” of the integrable functions. ” In this sense (sin x)/x is an integrable function. 4. Are there cardinal numbers beyond a, c, and f? The answer is that there are infinitely many transfinite cardinal numbers.
