Definition df-if 3359
Description: Define the conditional operator. Read  if ( ph ,  A ,  B ) as "if  ph then  A else  B." See iftrue 3363 and iffalse 3366 for its values. In mathematical literature, this operator is rarely defined formally but is implicit in informal definitions such as "let f(x)=0 if x=0 and 1/x otherwise."

In the absence of excluded middle, this will tend to be useful where  ph is decidable (in the sense of df-dc 754). (Contributed by NM, 15-May-1999.)
