Set theory is everywhere in mathematics, and I personally appreciated shoring up my foundations. This is pretty much what is done every time set builder notation is employed. If you get stuck, do try playing around with examples of sets on paper or in a text file. I was mildly annoyed with how the authors acknowledged the inconsistencies and then embraced them, thereby perpetuating a memetic tragedy of the commons. Again, comments are welcome.

In modern lingo, what Halmos calls a "similarity" is an "order isomorphism". Only a few exercises are designated as such since the book itself is an ongoing series of exercises with hints. Note on consistency[ edit ] It does not follow from this definition how sets can be formed, and what operations on sets again will produce a set. To build a solid foundation in proofs, I will now go through one or two books about mathematical proofs.

Should I read this book? My next review will take more time than did the previous four. I have no point of comparison here. I don't particularly recommend set theory to armchair mathematicians.

She concludes with views of the constructs and reality of mathematical structure. An example of such a class of sets could be the von Neumann universe. Cardinal numbers Read this chapter before Cardinal arithmetic.

I don't particularly recommend set theory to armchair mathematicians. None of the concepts within were particularly surprising, but it was good to play with them first-hand. In particular no attention was paid to the nature of elements of sets.

At two points, I laid down the book in order to finish two other books. Membership[ edit ] If x is a member of a set A, then it is also said that x belongs to A, or that x is in A. How does it fit in to the larger subject of mathematics?
