SETS

MY SKETCHBOOK

A set is a gathering together into a whole of definite, distinct objects of our perception or of our thought—which are called elements of the set. - Cantor || The most basic properties are that a set can have elements, and that two sets are equal (one and the same) if and only if every element of each set is an element of the other; this property is called the extensionality of sets.
