Description: Define reciprocal on positive fractions. It means the same thing as one divided by the argument (although we don't define full division since we will never need it). This is a "temporary" set used in the construction of complex numbers dfc 8985, and is intended to be used only by the construction. From Proposition 92.5 of [Gleason] p. 119, who uses an asterisk to denote this unary operation. (Contributed by NM, 6Mar1996.) (New usage is discouraged.)
