Unit 5: Set Theory
Computer scientists often find themselves working with sets of homogeneous or heterogeneous values. Scientists have devised set theory in order to respond to these situations. In this unit, we will learn the basics of set theory, taking a look at definitions and notations and using the proof methods and counterexample means we introduced earlier to establish set properties.
Set theory is a fundamental tool of mathematics and often used as the starting point for its study and to define basic concepts, such as functions, numbers, and limits.
