Definition df-lim 4397
Description: Define the limit ordinal predicate, which is true for a non-empty ordinal that is not a successor (i.e. that is the union of itself). Our definition combines the definition of Lim of [BellMachover] p. 471 and Exercise 1 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 42. See dflim2 4448, dflim3 4638, and dflim4 for alternate definitions.
