This textual content unites the logical and philosophical features of set idea in a fashion intelligible either to mathematicians with out education in formal common sense and to logicians with no mathematical history. It combines an uncomplicated point of remedy with the top attainable measure of logical rigor and precision. 1961 variation.

Where C is included in D but D is not included in C, we say that C is a proper sub-class of D. ) Product The product (or intersection) of two classes C and D is the class defined by: “… is a member of C and is a member of D”. This may be represented as follows: Figure 11 C ∩ D =df the class defined by: [x ε C ⋅ x ε D] Sum The sum of two class C and D is the class defined by: “… is a member of C or of D”. This may be represented as follows: Figure 12 C ∪ D =df the class defined by: [x ε C v x ε D] Manifold Sum The sum of the elements (or manifold sum) of a class C of classes is the class of members of members of that class.

34. 35. 4. The Classes Admitted by AxIII (a1) Let the class so defined (the unit-class of a set) be: [α] (cf. Fig. 15, p. 26). (a2) Let the class so defined (the complementary class of a class) be: Ã or: (a3) Let the class so defined (the intersection of two classes) be: /A ∩ B/ (cf. Fig. 11, p. 23). (b1) Let the class so defined (the class of unit sets) be: USt. (b2) Let the class so defined (the class of membership pairs) be: MPr. (b3) Let the class so defined (the class of first-member-in-A pairs) be: mem1A or mem1/A/ (cf.

23. “And” We use the sign ⋅ (read “dot”) between formulae, and it is defined by the following matrix: P Q PQ T T T F T F T F F F F F The matrix shows that if dot occurs between two formulae each of which represents a true proposition, the result is a formula representing a true proposition. In every other possible case the result is shown to be a formula representing a false proposition. e. e. 24. “Or” We use the sign v (read “vel”) between formulae, and it is defined by the following matrix: P Q P v Q T T T F T T T F T F F F The matrix shows that if vel occurs between two formulae each of which represents a false proposition, the result is a formula representing a false proposition.
