I worked my way through Halmos' Naive Set Theory, and did about 1/3 of Robert Vaught's book. Halmos was quite painful to work through, because there was little mathematical notation. I later discovered Enderton's "Elements of Set Theory" and I rec. More precisely, we will show that the Continuum Hypothesis does not follow from the axioms of the Elementary Theory вЂ¦ Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis by Paul J. Cohen English ISBN: EPUB pages 5,6 MB This exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of the man who discovered the solution.

A lucid, elegant, and complete survey of set theory, this three-part treatment explores axiomatic set theory, the consistency of the continuum hypothesis, and forcing and independence results. edition.A lucid, elegant, and complete survey of set theory, this volume is drawn from the authors' substantial teaching : $ This meetup group was active for a couple of years, but is currently dormant. I’m leaving this page here for the links. We finished the first two parts of Set Theory and the Continuum Problem by Smullyan and Fitting (S&F).; We read part of Roads to Infinity by John Stillwell.; I recommend reading Pollard’s review of Smullyan & Fitting. The first sentence perfectly captures my feelings.

A lucid, elegant, and complete survey of set theory, this volume is drawn from the authors' substantial teaching experience. The first of three parts focuses on axiomatic set theory.

The second part explores the consistency of the continuum hypothesis, and the final section examines forcing and independence One's focus on axiomatic set theory features nine chapters that. A set is pure if all of its members are sets, all members of its members are sets, and so on. For example, the set {{}} containing only the empty set is a nonempty pure set.

In modern set theory, it is common to restrict attention to the von Neumann universe of pure sets, and many systems of axiomatic set theory are designed to axiomatize the pure sets only. There is a new Dover edition of Smullyan, Fitting, Set Theory and the Continuum Problem.

This book has a non-standard approach to different topics. The new Dover edition of Lévy's Basic Set Theory contains an errata not available in the old version. Schimmerling's new book, A Course on Set Theory, looks like a nice and compact introduction.
