  Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms of set theory (ZF) are the standard axioms of axiomatic set theory on which, together with the axiom of choice, all of ordinary mathematics is based in modern formulations.
The axioms are the result of work by Thoralf Skolem in 1922, based on earlier work by Adolf Fraenkel in the same year, which was based on the axiom system put forth by Ernst Zermelo in 1908 (Zermelo set theory).
Axiom of union: For any set x, there is a set y such that the elements of y are precisely the elements of the elements of x.

 Power set - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cantor's diagonal argument shows that the power set of a set (infinite or not) always has strictly higher cardinality than the set itself (informally the power set must be 'greater' than the original set).
The power set of the set of natural numbers for instance can be put in a one-to-one correspondence with the set of real numbers (by identifying an infinite 0-1 sequence with the set of indices where the ones occur).
The power set of a set S forms an Abelian group when considered with the operation of symmetric difference (with the empty set as its unit and each set being its own inverse) and a commutative semigroup when considered with the operation of intersection.

 Axiomatic set theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Set theory is a branch of mathematics created principally by the German mathematician Georg Cantor at the end of the 19th century.
Initially controversial, set theory has come to play the role of a foundations of mathematicsfoundational theory/ in modern mathematics, in the sense of a theory invoked to justify assumptions made in mathematics concerning the existence of mathematical objects (such as numbers or functions) and their properties.
It is often asserted that axiomatic set theory is thus an adequate foundation for current mathematical practice, in the sense that ''in principle'' all proofs produced by the mathematical community could be written formally in set theory terms.

 Set Theory
Set theory is the branch of mathematics that deals with the properties of well-defined collections of objects.
Set A is a proper subset of set B iff all the members of A are also members of B, but not all the members of B are members of A. Notation.
Two sets can be put into one-to-one correspondence iff their members can be paired off such that each member of the first set has exactly one counterpart in the second set, and each member of the second set has exactly one counterpart in the first set.

However, the Cantorian demonstration, through the antinomy of the “power set” (the set of all subsets of a given set), of the inconsistency and contradictory nature of the “universal set”, or “set of all sets”, is not a sort of accident within the course of the development of his research.
As we have seen, the demonstration of the antinomy of the power set was functional for the Neoplatonic notion of and therefore for the notion of transcendence as pure “indescribability”.
In fact, if this maximal ordinal set was to exist, its limiting element should belong (as it is the maximal set) and at the same time should not belong (as it is the limiting element) to the ordinal set that it orders.

Naive set theory was created at the end of the 19th century by Georg Cantor in order to allow mathematicians to work with infinite sets consistently.
Two sets A and B are defined to be equal when they have precisely the same elements, that is, if every element of A is an element of B and every element of B is an element of A.
This is the set consisting of all objects which are elements of A or of B or of both (see axiom of union).

Every instance of the axiom of specification specifies a different specification set because otherwise z would be the set of all sets.
The axiom of specification fares no better than the axiom of comprehension and we will be proposing that the latter be reinstated bec ause it is a less ad hoc axiom than specification.

The set Z must be construed as an abstract ideal that is analogous to the concept of infinitesimal quantity, which is curious since set theory arose as an answer to the philosophical objection to such entities.

This axiom is not always used -- it seems to have no application to mathematics, but it does make some proofs and definitions easier, e.g., that of an ordinal.
The open question of whether one could develop a set theory with a finite number of axioms was answered in the affirmative by J. von Neumann in 1925.
Actually he used functions rather than sets as his primitive notion, and the current first-order version is due to the reworking in the late 1930's by (mainly) Bernays as well as Gödel, and called von Neumann-Bernays-Gödel set theory, abbreviated to NBG set theory.
