Axiomatic Set Theoryby Patrick Colo Suppes
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This clear and welldeveloped approach to axiomatic set theory is geared toward upperlevel undergraduates and graduate students. It examines the basic paradoxes and history of set theory and advanced topics such as relations and functions, equipollence, finite sets and cardinal numbers, rational and real numbers, and other subjects. 1960 edition. Synopsis:By means of the ZermeloFraenkel system, Suppes provides best treatment of axiomatic set theory on upper undergraduate and graduate levels. Topics include relations and functions, equipollence, finite sets and cardinal numbers, rational and real numbers, more Synopsis:Geared toward upperlevel undergraduates and graduate students, this treatment examines the basic paradoxes and history of set theory and advanced topics such as relations and functions, equipollence, more. 1960 edition.
