\chapter{Basics} \label{chapter0} \hypertarget{chapter0}{}
In this chapter we start with the very basic axioms and definitions of set theory. We shall make no attempt to introduce a formal language but shall be content with the common logical operators. To be more precise: precondition is a first-order predicate calculus with identy.
\par
\emph{G.~Cantor}, who is considered the founder of set theory, gave in a publication in 1895 a description of the term \emph{set}.
\begin{quote}
By a ``set'' we are to understand any collection into a whole $M$ of definite and separate objects $m$ of our intuition or our thought. These objects are called the ``elements'' of $M$.
\end{quote}
\par
This collection can be specified by giving a \emph{condition for memberschip}. Around 1900 various paradoxes in this naive set theory were discovered. These paradoxes base on giving tricky conditions for membership.
\par
There exist different ways out of those contradicitions. In this text we don't restrict the condition for membership but we call the result \emph{class}. Additional axioms allow us to call certain classes sets again. All sets are classes, but not all classes are sets. Sets are classes which are themselves members of classes, whilst a class which is not a set is a class which is not a member of any class.
\section{Classes and Sets} \label{chapter0_section0} \hypertarget{chapter0_section0}{}
Although we want to speak about \emph{sets} at the very beginning we have \emph{classes}. No formal definition of a class will be given. Informally, a class is a collection of objects, the involved objects are called the elements or members of the class.
Sets will be construed as a special kind of class.
The following definitions and axioms are due to a strengthened version of \emph{von~Neumann-Bernays-G{\"o}del's} set theory (\emph{NBG}). This version is called \emph{MK} which is short for \emph{Morse-Kelley}.
\par
The theory of sets introduced here has initial objects, called \emph{classes}. Furthermore the only predifined symbol is for a binary relation called \emph{memberschip}.
\begin{idefn}[Initial Definition of Membership Operator]
\label{in} \hypertarget{in}{}
$$x \in y$$
\end{idefn}
We also say $x$ \emph{is element of} $y$, $x$ \emph{belongs to} $y$, $x$ \emph{is a member of} $y$, $x$ \emph{is in} $y$.
Beside identy this is the only predicate we start with. All other will be defined.\footnote{One could also define the identy predicate within the set theory, but then another axiom is needed and the theory presentation is not so smooth for technical reasons (derivation of the equality axioms).} Also no function constants are initially given.
\par
Our first axiom states that, for any classes $x$ and $y$, if the membership of $x$ and $y$ are the same, then $x$ and $y$ are the same.\footnote{If identy were not part of our underlying logic, then we should need to take this as a definition of identy.}
\begin{ax}[Axiom of Extensionality]
\label{axiom:extensionality} \hypertarget{axiom:extensionality}{}
\mbox{}
\begin{longtable}{{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}p{\linewidth}}}
\centering $\forall z\ (z \in x\ \leftrightarrow \ z \in y)\ \rightarrow \ x \ = \ y$
\end{longtable}
\end{ax}
The classes $x$ and $y$ may be defined in entirely different ways, for example:
\par
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{rcX}
$x$ & = & class of all nonnegative integers, \\
$y$ & = & class of all integers, that can be written as sum of four squares,
\end{tabularx}
\par
but if they have the same members, they are the same class.
\par
Now we specify \emph{sets}.
\begin{defn}[Set Definition]
\label{isSet} \hypertarget{isSet}{}
$$\mathfrak{M}(x)\ :\leftrightarrow \ \exists y\ x \in y$$
\end{defn}
So sets are nothing else than special classes. A class is a set iff it is a member of any class.
\par
As a consequence of the axiom of extensionality we have the following.\footnote{The quantification over $z$ is restricted to sets.}
\begin{prop}
\label{module1:theorem} \hypertarget{module1:theorem}{}
\mbox{}
\begin{longtable}{{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}p{\linewidth}}}
\centering $\forall \ \mathfrak{M}(z)\ \ (z \in x\ \leftrightarrow \ z \in y)\ \rightarrow \ x \ = \ y$
\end{longtable}
\end{prop}
\begin{proof}
Assume $\forall \ \mathfrak{M}(z) \ ( z \in x \ \leftrightarrow \ z \in y)$. Let $z$ be an arbitrary class. If $z \in x$ then $z$ is a set by definition~\ref{isSet}, and hence by the assumption, $z \in y$. Similarly $z \in y \ \rightarrow \ z \in x$. Since $z$ is arbitrary, it follows that $\forall z \ (z \in x \ \leftrightarrow \ z \in y)$. Thus by the axiom of extensionality~\ref{axiom:extensionality}, $x = y$.
\end{proof}
