An Introduction to Elementary Set Theory Guram Bezhanishvili and Eachan Landreth 1 Introduction In this project we will learn elementary set theory from the original historical sources by two key gures in the development of set theory, Georg Cantor ({) and Richard Dedekind ({). Probability theory uses the language of sets. As we will see later, probability is defined and calculated for sets. Thus, here we briefly review some basic concepts from set theory that are used in this book. We discuss set notations, definitions, and operations (such as intersections and unions). We then introduce countable and uncountable sets. The symbol 2 is used to describe a relationship between an element of the universal set and a subset of the universal set, and the symbol $$\subseteq$$ is used to describe a relationship between two subsets of the universal set. For example, the number 5 is an integer, and so . 3 ∈ {1,2,3} Special sets. A subset is a set contained within another set, or it can be the entire set itself. The set {1,2} is a subset of the set {1,2,3}, and the set {1,2,3} is a subset of the set {1,2,3}. When the subset is missing some elements that are in the set it is being compared to, it is a proper subset. When the subset is the set itself, it is an improper subset.
We have already seen that the elements of a set may themselves be sets. For example, the power set of a set $$T$$, $$\mathcal{P}(T)$$, is the set of all subsets of $$T$$. The phrase, “a set of sets” sounds confusing, and so we often use the terms collection and family when we wish to emphasize that the elements of a given set are themselves. Mathematics Set Theory Symbols. Let us see the different types of symbols used in Mathematics set theory with its meaning and examples. Consider a Universal set (U) = {1, 2, 7, 9, 13, 15, 21, 23, 28, 30}. is a set theory in which there is a universal set. Quine’s \New Foundations" has a bad reputation. Its consistency rela-tive to ZFC remains an open question. In (immediately after Rosser published his book Logic for Mathematicians, which was based on \New Foundations"), E. Specker proved that \New Foundations" proves theFile Size: KB. In set theory this is done by declaring a universal set. Deﬁnition The universal set, at least for a given collection of set theoretic computations, is the set of all possible objects. If we declare our universal set to be the integers then {1 2, 2 3} is not a well deﬁned set because the objects used to deﬁne it are not members of the.
