##### Introduction
Naive set theory considers elementary properties of the union and intersection operators Venn diagrams, the DeMorgan laws, elementary counting techniques such as the inclusion-exclusion principle, partially ordered sets, and so on. This is perhaps as much of set theory as the typical mathematician uses. Indeed, one may "construct" the natural numbers, real numbers, and so on in this framework. However, situations such as Russell's paradox show that some care must be taken to define what, precisely, is a set. However, results in mathematical logic imply it is impossible to determine whether or not these axioms are consistent using only proofs expressed in this language. Assuming they are indeed consistent, there are also statements whose truth or falsity cannot be determined from them. These statements (or their negations!) can be taken as axioms for set theory as well. For example, Cohen's technique of forcing showed that the Axiom of Choice is independent of the other axioms of ZF. (That axiom states that for every collection of nonempty sets, there is a set containing one element from each set in the collection.) This axiom is equivalent to a number of other statements (e.g. Zorn's Lemma) whose assumption allows the proof of surprising even paradoxical results such as the Banach-Tarski sphere decomposition. Thus, some authors are careful to distinguish results which depend on this or other non-ZF axioms; most assume it (that is, they work in ZFC Set Theory).

About axiom of choice (Axiom) The Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms for set theory are more or less uncontroversial. However, there is another axiom , the axiom of choice Axiom Let be a set of nonempty sets. Then there exists a function such that for all The function is sometimes called a choice function on For finite sets , a choice function can be constructed without appealing to the axiom of choice. It is only for infinite (and usually uncountable ) sets objects that are proved to exist using the axiom of choice cannot generally be described by any kind of systematic rule, for if they could it would not be necessary to their construction. Let us consider a couple of examples. Imagine that there are infinitely many pairs of shoes (each consisting of one left shoe and one right shoe). Let denote the set of all pairs of shoes. In this scenario, it can be verified that the function

Set Theory Jump to: navigation search Two dual ideas in set theory have to do with finding the "largest" possible objects in some set under a given ordering and with making a simultaneous selection of objects from many sets. These notions are phrased in terms of Zorn's Lemma, and the Axiom of Choice and though they sound very different, they are equivalent to one another. That is, given Zorn's Lemma, one can derive the Axiom of Choice and vice versa. The Axiom of Choice is named as such because it is independent from Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory axioms. Thus, the addition of Choice to ZF enables work not previously possible.

Axiom of choice - Quotes: Encyclopedia - Axiom of choice In mathematics, the axiom of choice, or AC, is an axiom of set theory. It was formulated in 1904 by Ernst Zermelo. While it was originally controversial, it is now used without embarrassment by most mathematicians. However, there are still schools of mathematical thought, primarily within set theory, that either reject the axiom of choice, or even investigate consequences of axioms inconsistent with AC. Intuitively speaking, AC says that given a collection of bins, each containing at least one object, then exactly one ob ...

I agree that, according to standard Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, the proposition is false. Proposition: The Zermelo-Fraenkel power set axiom and the axiom of choice are inconsistent if an extended language is not used to express all the reals. Discussion: The power set axiom reads: 'Given any set X there is a set Y which has as its members all the subsets of X.' The axiom of choice reads: 'For any nonempty set X there is a set Y which has precisely one element in common with set X.'* *Definitions taken from 'Logic for Mathematicians,' A.G. Hamilton, Cambridge, revised 1988.

GÃ¶del s 1938 proof provided the related result that the negation of the Axiom of choice could not be derived from the standard Axioms.

 This essay originally appeared in the Ellsworth American , August 27, 1992, Section I, p. 2. Peter Suber Ellsworth American serves the Blue Hill area.) For this HTML version I restore the footnotes , which I did not submit to the newspaper, and a sidebar , which the newspaper omitted perhaps for being too technical. 50 Years Later, The Questions Remain Peter Suber Philosophy Department Earlham College The first incompleteness theorem showed that some perfectly well-formed arithmetical statements could never be proved true or false. Worse, it showed that some arithmetical truths could never be proved true. More precisely, for every axiomatic system designed to capture arithmetic, there will be arithmetic truths which cannot be derived from its axioms, even if we supplement the original set of axioms with an infinity of additional axioms. This shattered the assumption that every mathematical truth could eventually be proved true, and every falsehood disproved, if only enough time and ingenuity were spent on them. The second incompleteness theorem showed that axiomatic systems of arithmetic could only be proved consistent by other systems. This made the proof conditional on the consistency of the second system, which in turn could only be validated by a third, and so on. No consistency proof for arithmetic could be final, which meant that our confidence in arithmetic could never be perfect.

##### The Axiom of Choice is Wrong
ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ  When discussing the validity of the Axiom of Choice , the most common argument for not taking it as gospel is the Banach-Tarski paradox The answer to this in a moment; but first, the relevant generalization. A countable infinite number of prisoners are placed on the natural numbers, facing in the positive direction (ie, everyone can see an infinite number of prisoners).ÃÂ  Hats will be placed and each prisoner will be asked what his hat color is.ÃÂ  However, to complicate things, prisoners cannot hear previous guesses or whether they were correct.ÃÂ  In this new situation, what is the best strategy? Intuitively, strategy is impossible since no information can be conveyed from anyone who knows your hat color to you, so it would seem that everyone guessing blindly.ÃÂ  However, all but a finite number of prisoners can go free! ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ  Hmm, he could say the color of the hat on the guy in front of him.ÃÂ  That guy would then guess correctly, but then the next guy would be in the same situation as the first guy.ÃÂ  Repeating this idea gets onlyÃÂ 50 prisoners out guarenteed, with an average ofÃÂ 75 getting out.

For DAP I cannot pretend to do an exhaustive treatment of this material here. In my mind's eye this is about a 400 page book, to do it justice. So, I can either wait until that mega-project is complete, which will be years (if ever), or I can point you in a direction, and see how it goes. These, then, are basically my notes. This writing remains incomplete, and reflects the latest in my ongoing search for the Infinite. That's a very important clue. You can do the research for any terms you might not understand, or ignore the whole thing. I'm still writing less. But if you are going to get anything at all out of this, you are going to have to think a good deal more. In 1931, the Czech-born mathematician Kurt GÃ¶del developed one of the most important mathematical proofs of the last 100 years. It has echoed throughout many fields, from math to science to philosophy, computer design, artificial intelligence, even linguistics and psychology.

##### Classical and Intuitionistic Logic
Mathematical reasoning as commonly practised makes use of two other logical principles, excluded middle and the axiom of choice, which we shall not use in our main development. Classical predicate calculus consists of the rules we have given together with excluded middle. Excluded middle ``Every proposition is either true or false.'' D EFINITION Excluded middle may be expressed as either of omitted prooftree environment omitted prooftree environment which are equivalent in the sense that

decidable or complemented (as on the right). In saying that we shall not use excluded middle, beware that we are not affirming its negation f f f f , which is falsity. If we are able to prove neither f f then we remain silent about them Of course there are instances of case analysis even in intuitionism, in particular the properties of finite sets. A recurrent example will be parsing of terms in free algebras, for example a list either is empty or has a head (first element) and tail (Section ) and ( E ) are incorporated to give indirect rules omitted proofbox environment pt omitted proofbox environment known as reductio ad absurdum and tertium non datur (Latin: the third is not given) respectively. Some Real Mathematicians use the former habitually, starting

##### The grail machine: Two
ZF+: A set theory for describing the mind by Rolf Mifflin Abstract: The complete description of the mind, as well as of the universe that allows the mind, requires a formal language beyond any in common use today ('03). Here I present a modified version of Zermelo-Fraenkel set formalism sufficient to make statements completely equivalent to our thoughts and, so, symbolically present the systems of artificial minds I argue are constructible to modern science. This modified set theory is called ZF+. Table of contents: 1: Set theory and the mind 2: Aristotelian assumptions 3: Temporal assumptions Fig. 1: Illustration of the logical Future and Past ... B: Axioms of ZF and ZFC abandoned by ZF+ Set theory and the mind Having introduced an extension to formal logic called the temporal propositions in The grail machine: One , I will here extend these propositions into the structure of modern set theory. This discussion will be useful both to the general reader and the student of logic.

##### DEREK DILLON'S UNPUBLISHED ARTICLES
Econophysics: Reflections 35 Years Later The following two years, sitting in Dr. Elspeth RostowÂs seminars on American intellectual history listening to accounts of the role NewtonÂs physics played in organizing the spectrum of 17th and 18th century political economy, I fully recognized the unstated corollary that the advent of relativity and quantum physics had utterly sundered the assumptions underlying market capitalism, all of which are rooted in views prevalent during that period two- to three-hundred years ago. What happens when the dominant economy is running on intellectual empty? is a question first entertained by me at that time. Just barely touching my awareness, like a ghost image hovering behind the fair doctorÂs words, was an implication relative to logic-lattice maps: the behavior equations of econometrics are all drawn in Cartesian x,y,z-coordinates; as long as that situation prevails, there can be no new post-Newtonian notions of the functions of exchange. I was aware that statistical mechanics was regarded as post-Newtonian. I was aware that stochastic economics was

First published Fri Dec 8, 1995; substantive revision Thu May 1, 2003 Russell's paradox is the most famous of the logical or set-theoretical paradoxes. The paradox arises within naive set theory by considering the set of all sets that are not members of themselves. Such a set appears to be a member of itself if and only if it is not a member of itself, hence the paradox. Some sets, such as the set of all teacups, are not members of themselves. Other sets, such as the set of all non-teacups, are members of themselves. Call the set of all sets that are not members of themselves " R ." If R is a member of itself, then by definition it must not be a member of itself. Similarly, if R is not a member of itself, then by definition it must be a member of itself. Discovered by Bertrand Russell in 1901, the paradox has prompted much work in logic, set theory and the philosophy and foundations of mathematics.

Russell appears to have discovered his paradox in the late spring of 1901

 Logic and Philosophy of Logic Do Sentences Have Identity? Jean-Yves BÃ©ziau National Laboratory for Scientific Computing - LNCC/CNPq jyb@alpha.lncc.br ABSTRACT: 1. What is equiformity? Some logicians have rejected propositions in favour of sentences, arguing in particular that there is no satisfactory identity criterion for propositions (cf. Quine, 1970). But is there one for sentences? The idea that logic is about sentences rather than propositions and that sentences are nothing more that material inscriptions was already developed by Lesniewski, who also saw immediately the main difficulty of this conception and introduced the notion of equiformity As already explained, sentences are here regarded as material objects (inscriptions). (...) It is not always possible to form the implication of two sentences (they may occur in widely separated places). In order to simplify matters we have (...) committed an error; this consists in identifying equiform sentences (as S. Lesniewski calls them). This error can be removed by interpreting

The Theorem of Pappus: A Bridge between Algebra and Geometry
by Elena Anne Marchisotto
emarchisotto@csun.edu

A theorem of the great mathematician, Pappus of Alexandria, makes a beautiful connection between algebra and geometry that we explore in this article. We start with a geometric structure and impose certain postulates and theorems to determine an algebraic structure of an abstract coordinate set. Then we prove that Pappus' theorem is sufficient for commutativity of multiplication there. It can also be proved that it is necessary. At the end of the article we examine a host of horizons opened by Pappus' theorem and provide a substantial resouce list for further exploration. A Curious Connection Between Fermat Numbers and Finite Groups
by Carrie E. Finch and Lenny Jones cfinch@math.sc.edu lkjone@ship.edu
The authors were investigating finite groups possessing a property related to certain subsets of the group, when suddenly the problem became entangled in number theory. The shocking conclusion is that the solution to a large part of the group theory problem is a direct consequence of the fact that the Fermat number 2 +1 is not prime.

##### An encoding of Zermelo-Fraenkel Set Theory in Coq
The encoding of Zermelo-Fraenkel Set Theory is largely inspired by Peter Aczel's work dating back to the eighties. A type Ens is defined, which represents sets. Two predicates IN and EQ stand for membership and extensional equality between sets. The axioms of ZFC are then proved and thus appear as theorems in the development. A main motivation for this work is the comparison of the respective expressive power of Coq and ZFC. A non-computational type-theoretical axiom of choice is necessary to prove the replacement schemata and the set-theoretical AC. The main difference between this work and Peter Aczel's is that propositions are defined on the impredicative level Prop. Since the definition of Ens is, however, still unchanged, I also added most of Peter Aczel's definition. The main advantage of Aczel's approach is a more constructive vision of the existential quantifier (which gives the set-theoretical axiom of choice for free).

##### Axiom of choice
Jump to: navigation search This article is about the mathematical concept. For the band named after it, see Axiom of Choice (band) In mathematics , the axiom of choice , or AC , is an axiom of set theory . Intuitively speaking, the axiom of choice says that given any collection of bins, each containing at least one object, exactly one object can be selected from each bin, even if there are infinitely many bins and there is no "rule" for which object to pick from each. The axiom of choice is not required if the number of bins is finite or if such a selection "rule" is available. It was formulated in 1904 by Ernst Zermelo While it was originally controversial, it is now used without reservation by most mathematicians. However, there are schools of mathematical thought, primarily within set theory, that either reject the axiom of choice or investigate consequences of axioms inconsistent with AC.
##### edit Statement
The axiom of choice states:
Let X be a set of non-empty sets . Then we can choose a single member from each set in X
A choice function is a function f on a collection X of sets such that for every set s in X f s ) is an element of s . With this concept, the axiom can be stated:

Another example is the statement that a sequence of numbers increases infinitely often. Fortuitously, our seminar speaker later in the afternoon, Monika Seisenberger from Swansea, showed us some technology based on the A-translation, for extracting algorithms from classical proofs. Indeed, she showed us it working to give a tail-recursive version of the reverse function. This machinery works in the MINLOG system, developed by Schwichtenberg and others (like Monika) at Munich.

The purpose of this note is to show that under a small number of assumptions, it is possible to interpret truth in a context as a quantification over truth in a set of 'atomic' contexts, which are transparent to all the connectives. We also analyze the necessary assumptions, and suggest conditions under which they are intuitively reasonable. The primary sources of the relevant intuitions, and much of the formal technique, are mereology and earlier work on temporal truth; and the thinking herein all arises from looking at contexts as having parts, and allowing for the possibility that a sentence may be true in some parts of a context but not all of the parts. These matters have all been previously analyzed in considerable depth in the case where a context is a time-interval, and indeed one can follow the entire development with that intuition as a guide. However, the actual formal assumptions used amount to only six axioms, and so the results apply to any notion of context which satisfies these.

This entire note is inspired by the context logic originally introduced by J. McCarthy and R. V. Guha, and subsequently developed by others. It is intended to address the issue discussed in [

Posted by Nick So to inaugurate this blog, I'd like to talk about a topic that has been holding my attention lately - namely, mathematics. I've been led to research it, in part, because I have always been interested in the precise certainty that math is capable of, and in part, because of the recently published translation of " Being and Event " by Alain Badiou. While this book has been out in France since 1988, it was only published now in English because of the rising popularity of Badiou. While I could (and will at some point) talk more about Badiou, what interests me here is one of his main theses within the work - that 'mathematics is ontology'. (Ontology, for those who haven't been reading their Heidegger, is the study of Being, of what is, of what it means to be. Certainly a weighty and abstract topic, but one that is arguably foundational for any other study.) Anyways, what Badiou seems to mean by his proposition is that mathematics (specifically, Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory , with the Axiom of Choice, or 'ZFC') is the best means to present how Being presents itself. It is important to note that math is
