The Axiom of Choice PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Axiom of Choice free pdf This book presents an overview of the development of the Axiom of Choice since its introduction by Zermelo at the beginning of the last century. The book surveys the Axiom of Choice from three perspectives. The first, or mathematical perspective, is that of the "working mathematician." This perspective brings into view the manifold applications of the Axiom of Choice-usually in the guise of Zorns Lemma- in a great variety of areas of mathematics. The second, foundational, perspective is that of the logician or constructive mathematician concerned with the foundational status of the Axiom of Choice. The third, topos-theoretical, perspective is that taken by the mathematician or logician investigating the role of the Axiom of Choice in topos theory. Certain topics-for instance mathematical applications of the Axiom, and its relationship with logic-are discussed in considerable detail. Others-notably the consistency and independence of the Axiom of the usual systems of set theory-are given no more than summary treatment, the justification here being that these topics have been given full expositions elsewhere. It is hoped that the book will be of interest to logicians and mathematicians, both professional and prospective.
