Not logged in In 1963, the first author introduced a course in set theory at the University of Illinois whose main objectives were to cover Godel's work on the con­ sistency of the Axiom of Choice (AC) and the Generalized Continuum Hypothesis (GCH), and Cohen's work on the independence of the AC and the GCH.

Axiomatic Set Theory January 14, 2013 1 Introduction One of our main aims in this course is to prove the following: 1 2 3 Theorem 1.1 (G odel 1938) If set theory without the Axiom of Choice (ZF) is consistent (i.e. First, nearly all mathematical elds use it. Number theory, algebra, analysis an all other theories could be constructed within. In 1963, the first author introduced a course in set theory at the University of Illinois whose main objectives were to cover Godel's work on the con­ sistency of the Axiom of Choice (AC) and the Generalized Continuum Hypothesis (GCH), and Cohen's work on the independence of the AC and the GCH. does not lead to a contradiction), then set theory with the axiom of choice (ZFC) is consistent. A set theory textbook can cover a vast amount of material depending on the mathematical background of the readers it was designed for. Not affiliated Advocates of the fast development claim at least two advantages. First, key results are high­ lighted, and second, the student who wishes to master the subject is com­ pelled to develop the detail on his own. Selecting the material for presentation in this book often came down to deciding how much detail should be provided when explaining concepts and what constitutes a reasonable logical gap which can be independently ﬁlled in by the reader. Second, every mathemati-cal statement or proof could be cast into formulas within set theory. stream About this book. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4613-8168-6, Cofinality, the Generalized Continuum Hypothesis, and Cardinal Arithmetic.
