I here about axioms is set theory and postulates in geometry, but they seem like the same thing. Do the mean the same thing but then are used in different instances or what? Is one word more ...
My dad introduced my to primitive notions in geometry in high school. It's come back to haunt me as I study real analysis; I find myself wondering, Have we given this a formal definition? ...
Lets take (classical) first-order logic for granted, including an equality symbol and its associated axioms. Given all this, a rigorous work of mathematics will typically begin with a signature - ...
I'm fighting with Grothendieck set theory for some time now. This is the framework for the automated proof checking system of Mizar and hence there is a formalized version of the axioms here too, and ...
What should I be able to do with this chapter on Axiomatic Set Theory in order to check if I've learned it decently? [closed]
I've just read a chapter on axiomatic set theory, from Comprehensive Mathematics for Computer Scientists 1. It comes with basic notation on sets and some axioms: Axiom 1 (Axiom of Empty Set) Axiom 2 ...
If I drop the axiom that Zero is the identity of an addition what consequences does this entail? What do I need to change to my axiomatization? By definition it is not possible, but are there ...
