Synopses & Reviews
This book is designed for a one-semester course in set theory at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Three features are the full integration into the text of the study of models of set theory, the use of illustrative examples both in the text and in the exercises, and the integration of consistency results and large cardinals into the text early on. This book is aimed at two audiences: students who are interested in studying set theory for its own sake, and students in other areas who may be curious about applications of set theory to their field. In particular, great care is taken to develop the intuitions that lie behind modern, as well as classical, set theory, and to connect set theory with the rest of mathematics.
