What does Hyperset mean?

What does Hyperset mean?

In this context, axioms contradicting the axiom of regularity are known as anti-foundation axioms, and a set that is not necessarily well-founded is called a hyperset.

What is the iterative conception of set?

The Von Neumann universe implements the “iterative conception of set” by stratifying the universe of sets into a series of “stages”, with the sets at a given stage being possible members of the sets formed at all higher stages. The notion of stage goes as follows. Each stage is assigned an ordinal number.

Who is a major thinker in the field of set theory?

Set theory, as a separate mathematical discipline, begins in the work of Georg Cantor. One might say that set theory was born in late 1873, when he made the amazing discovery that the linear continuum, that is, the real line, is not countable, meaning that its points cannot be counted using the natural numbers.

A⊆B subset A is a subset of B. set A is included in set B.
A⊂B proper subset / strict subset A is a subset of B, but A is not equal to B.

Why do we need axiom of regularity?

The axiom of regularity enables defining the ordered pair (a,b) as {a,{a,b}}; see ordered pair for specifics. This definition eliminates one pair of braces from the canonical Kuratowski definition (a,b) = {{a},{a,b}}.

What is axiom of equality?

In mathematics, the axiom of equality states that a number is always equal to itself. This axiom is derived from the mathematician Euclid’s notion that “things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to each other.” To put it in even simpler terms, x equals x.

What does this ⊆ mean?

is a subset of
The symbol “⊆” means “is a subset of”. The symbol “⊂” means “is a proper subset of”. Example. Since all of the members of set A are members of set D, A is a subset of D. Symbolically this is represented as A ⊆ D.

Is ∅ a subset of ∅?

Yes. ∅⊊{{∅}} becasue {∅}∈{{∅}} and {∅}∉∅. More generally, empty set is proper subset of every non-empty set.
