Definition df-er 6614
Description: Define the equivalence relation predicate. Our notation is not standard. A formal notation doesn't seem to exist in the literature; instead only informal English tends to be used. The present definition, although somewhat cryptic, nicely avoids dummy variables. In dfer2 6615 we derive a more typical definition. We show that an equivalence relation is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive in erref 6634, ersymb 6628, and ertr 6629. (Contributed by NM, 4-Jun-1995.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 2-Nov-2015.)
