Problems and Theorems in Classical Set Theory - E-bog
This is the first comprehensive collection of problems in set theory. Most of classical set theory is covered, classical in the sense that independence methods are not used, but classical also in the sense that most results come from the period between Many problems are also related to other fields of mathematics such as algebra, combinatorics, topology and real analysis.
The authors choose not to concentrate on the axiomatic framework, although some aspects are elaborated axiom of foundation and the axiom of choice.
Rather than using drill exercises, most problems are challenging and require work, wit, and inspiration. The problems are organized in a way that earlier problems help in the solution of later ones. For many problems, the authors trace the origin and provide proper references at the end of the solution. This is destined to become a classic, and will be an important resource for students and researchers. As indicated by the authors, "most of classical set theory is covered, classical in the sense that independence methods are not used, but classical also in the sense that most results come from the period, say, The statement of the problems, which are distributed among 31 chapters, takes pages, and the fairly detailed solutions together with some references another pages.
Some problems are elementary but most of them are challenging. This is a welcome addition to the literature, which should be useful to students and researchers alike.

This article was also featured in Maxim's Engineering Journal, vol. Since sets are objects, the membership relation can relate sets as well. We will generally use capital letters for sets.
The papers are listed in reverse chronological order, except that I put two surveys at the beginning to make them easier to find. PostScript or PDF. An expository talk, for a general mathematical audience, about cardinal characteristics of the continuum. Foreman, M. Magidor, and A.
Set theory is a branch of mathematical logic that studies sets , which informally are collections of objects. Although any type of object can be collected into a set, set theory is applied most often to objects that are relevant to mathematics. The language of set theory can be used to define nearly all mathematical objects. The modern study of set theory was initiated by Georg Cantor and Richard Dedekind in the s. After the discovery of paradoxes in naive set theory , such as Russell's paradox , numerous axiom systems were proposed in the early twentieth century, of which the Zermelo—Fraenkel axioms , with or without the axiom of choice , are the best-known.
Set theory is the mathematical theory of well-determined collections, called sets , of objects that are called members , or elements , of the set. Pure set theory deals exclusively with sets, so the only sets under consideration are those whose members are also sets.
Set theory is one of the greatest achievements of modern mathematics. Basically all mathematical concepts, methods, and results admit of representation within axiomatic set theory. Thus set theory has served quite a unique role by systematizing modern mathematics, and approaching in a unified form all basic questions about admissible mathematical arguments—including the thorny question of existence principles. This entry covers in outline the convoluted process by which set theory came into being, covering roughly the years to This already suggests that, in order to discuss the early history, it is necessary to distinguish two aspects of set theory: its role as a fundamental language and repository of the basic principles of modern mathematics; and its role as an independent branch of mathematics, classified today as a branch of mathematical logic.
