1.4.4 Axiom scheme ax-17 (Distinctness) - first
use of $d | ||

Axiom | ax-17 1626* |
Axiom of Distinctness. This axiom quantifies a variable over a formula
in which it does not occur. Axiom C5 in [Megill] p. 444 (p. 11 of the
preprint). Also appears as Axiom B6 (p. 75) of system S2 of [Tarski]
p. 77 and Axiom C5-1 of [Monk2] p. 113.
(See comments in ax17o 2234 about the logical redundancy of ax-17 1626 in the presence of our obsolete axioms.) This axiom essentially says that if does not occur in , i.e. does not depend on in any way, then we can add the quantifier to with no further assumptions. By sp 1763, we can also remove the quantifier (unconditionally). (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | exlimiv 1644* |
Inference from Theorem 19.23 of [Margaris] p.
90.
This inference, along with our many variants such as rexlimdv 2829, is
used to implement a metatheorem called "Rule C" that is given
in many
logic textbooks. See, for example, Rule C in [Mendelson] p. 81, Rule C
in [Margaris] p. 40, or Rule C in
Hirst and Hirst's In informal proofs, the statement "Let be an element such that..." almost always means an implicit application of Rule C. In essence, Rule C states that if we can prove that some element exists satisfying a wff, i.e. where has free, then we can use as a hypothesis for the proof where is a new (ficticious) constant not appearing previously in the proof, nor in any axioms used, nor in the theorem to be proved. The purpose of Rule C is to get rid of the existential quantifier. We cannot do this in Metamath directly. Instead, we use the original (containing ) as an antecedent for the main part of the proof. We eventually arrive at where is the theorem to be proved and does not contain . Then we apply exlimiv 1644 to arrive at . Finally, we separately prove and detach it with modus ponens ax-mp 8 to arrive at the final theorem . (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (Revised by Wolf Lammen to remove dependency on ax-9 and ax-8, 4-Dec-2017.) |

1.4.5 Equality predicate; define
substitution | ||

Syntax | cv 1651 |
This syntax construction states that a variable , which has been
declared to be a set variable by $f statement vx, is also a class
expression. This can be justified informally as follows. We know that
the class builder is a class by cab 2422.
Since (when
is distinct from
) we have by
cvjust 2431, we can argue that the syntax " " can be viewed as
an abbreviation for " ". See the
discussion
under the definition of class in [Jech] p. 4
showing that "Every set can
be considered to be a class."
While it is tempting and perhaps occasionally useful to view cv 1651 as a "type conversion" from a set variable to a class variable, keep in mind that cv 1651 is intrinsically no different from any other class-building syntax such as cab 2422, cun 3318, or c0 3628. For a general discussion of the theory of classes and the role of cv 1651, see http://us.metamath.org/mpeuni/mmset.html#class. (The description above applies to set theory, not predicate calculus. The purpose of introducing here, and not in set theory where it belongs, is to allow us to express i.e. "prove" the weq 1653 of predicate calculus from the wceq 1652 of set theory, so that we don't "overload" the connective with two syntax definitions. This is done to prevent ambiguity that would complicate some Metamath parsers.) |

Syntax | wceq 1652 |
Extend wff definition to include class equality.
For a general discussion of the theory of classes, see http://us.metamath.org/mpeuni/mmset.html#class. (The purpose of introducing here, and not in set theory where it belongs, is to allow us to express i.e. "prove" the weq 1653 of predicate calculus in terms of the wceq 1652 of set theory, so that we don't "overload" the connective with two syntax definitions. This is done to prevent ambiguity that would complicate some Metamath parsers. For example, some parsers - although not the Metamath program - stumble on the fact that the in could be the of either weq 1653 or wceq 1652, although mathematically it makes no difference. The class variables and are introduced temporarily for the purpose of this definition but otherwise not used in predicate calculus. See df-cleq 2429 for more information on the set theory usage of wceq 1652.) |

Theorem | weq 1653 |
Extend wff definition to include atomic formulas using the equality
predicate.
(Instead of introducing weq 1653 as an axiomatic statement, as was done in an older version of this database, we introduce it by "proving" a special case of set theory's more general wceq 1652. This lets us avoid overloading the connective, thus preventing ambiguity that would complicate certain Metamath parsers. However, logically weq 1653 is considered to be a primitive syntax, even though here it is artificially "derived" from wceq 1652. Note: To see the proof steps of this syntax proof, type "show proof weq /all" in the Metamath program.) (Contributed by NM, 24-Jan-2006.) |

Theorem | speimfw 1655 | Specialization, with additional weakening to allow bundling of and . Uses only Tarski's FOL axiom schemes. (Contributed by NM, 23-Apr-2017.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 5-Aug-2017.) |

Theorem | ax11i 1657 | Inference that has ax-11 1761 (without ) as its conclusion. Uses only Tarski's FOL axiom schemes. The hypotheses may be eliminable without one or more of these axioms in special cases. Proof similar to Lemma 16 of [Tarski] p. 70. (Contributed by NM, 20-May-2008.) |

Syntax | wsb 1658 | Extend wff definition to include proper substitution (read "the wff that results when is properly substituted for in wff "). (Contributed by NM, 24-Jan-2006.) |

Definition | df-sb 1659 |
Define proper substitution. Remark 9.1 in [Megill] p. 447 (p. 15 of the
preprint). For our notation, we use to mean "the wff
that results from the proper substitution of for in the wff
." We
can also use in
place of the "free for"
side condition used in traditional predicate calculus; see, for example,
stdpc4 2091.
Our notation was introduced in Haskell B. Curry's In most books, proper substitution has a somewhat complicated recursive definition with multiple cases based on the occurrences of free and bound variables in the wff. Instead, we use a single formula that is exactly equivalent and gives us a direct definition. We later prove that our definition has the properties we expect of proper substitution (see theorems sbequ 2111, sbcom2 2190 and sbid2v 2200). Note that our definition is valid even when and are replaced with the same variable, as sbid 1947 shows. We achieve this by having free in the first conjunct and bound in the second. We can also achieve this by using a dummy variable, as the alternate definition dfsb7 2198 shows (which some logicians may prefer because it doesn't mix free and bound variables). Another version that mixes free and bound variables is dfsb3 2109. When and are distinct, we can express proper substitution with the simpler expressions of sb5 2176 and sb6 2175. There are no restrictions on any of the variables, including what variables may occur in wff . (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | sbequ2 1660 | An equality theorem for substitution. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 25-Feb-2018.) |

Theorem | sbequ2OLD 1661 | Obsolete proof of sbequ2 1660 as of 25-Feb-2018. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (New usage is discouraged.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |

Theorem | sbbii 1665 | Infer substitution into both sides of a logical equivalence. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

1.4.6 Axiom scheme ax-9 (Existence) | ||

Axiom | ax-9 1666 |
Axiom of Existence. One of the equality and substitution axioms of
predicate calculus with equality. This axiom tells us is that at least
one thing exists. In this form (not requiring that and be
distinct) it was used in an axiom system of Tarski (see Axiom B7' in
footnote 1 of [KalishMontague] p.
81.) It is equivalent to axiom scheme
C10' in [Megill] p. 448 (p. 16 of the
preprint); the equivalence is
established by ax9o 1954 and ax9from9o 2225. A more convenient form of this
axiom is a9e 1952, which has additional remarks.
Raph Levien proved the independence of this axiom from the other logical axioms on 12-Apr-2005. See item 16 at http://us.metamath.org/award2003.html. ax-9 1666 can be proved from the weaker version ax9v 1667 requiring that the variables be distinct; see theorem ax9 1953. ax-9 1666 can also be proved from the Axiom of Separation (in the form that we use that axiom, where free variables are not universally quantified). See theorem ax9vsep 4334. Except by ax9v 1667, this axiom should not be referenced directly. Instead, use theorem ax9 1953. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (New usage is discouraged.) |

Theorem | ax9v 1667* |
Axiom B7 of [Tarski] p. 75, which requires that
and be
distinct. This trivial proof is intended merely to weaken axiom ax-9 1666
by adding a distinct variable restriction. From here on, ax-9 1666
should
not be referenced directly by any other proof, so that theorem ax9 1953
will show that we can recover ax-9 1666 from this weaker version if it were
an axiom (as it is in the case of Tarski).
Note: Introducing as a distinct variable group
"out of the
blue" with no apparent justification has puzzled some people, but
it is
perfectly sound. All we are doing is adding an additional redundant
requirement, no different from adding a redundant logical hypothesis,
that results in a weakening of the theorem. This means that any
When possible, use of this theorem rather than ax9 1953 is preferred since its derivation from axioms is much shorter. (Contributed by NM, 7-Aug-2015.) |

Theorem | a9ev 1668* | At least one individual exists. Weaker version of a9e 1952. When possible, use of this theorem rather than a9e 1952 is preferred since its derivation from axioms is much shorter. (Contributed by NM, 3-Aug-2017.) |

Theorem | exiftru 1669 | A companion rule to ax-gen, valid only if an individual exists. Unlike ax-9 1666, it does not require equality on its interface. Some fundamental theorems of predicate logic can be proven from ax-gen 1555, ax-5 1566 and this theorem alone, not requiring ax-8 1687 or excessive distinct variable conditions. (Contributed by Wolf Lammen, 12-Nov-2017.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 9-Dec-2017.) |

Theorem | exiftruOLD 1670 | Obsolete proof of exiftru 1669 as of 9-Dec-2017. (Contributed by Wolf Lammen, 12-Nov-2017.) (New usage is discouraged.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |

1.4.7 Axiom scheme ax-8 (Equality) | ||

Axiom | ax-8 1687 |
Axiom of Equality. One of the equality and substitution axioms of
predicate calculus with equality. This is similar to, but not quite, a
transitive law for equality (proved later as equtr 1694). This axiom scheme
is a sub-scheme of Axiom Scheme B8 of system S2 of [Tarski], p. 75, whose
general form cannot be represented with our notation. Also appears as
Axiom C7 of [Monk2] p. 105 and Axiom Scheme
C8' in [Megill] p. 448 (p. 16
of the preprint).
The equality symbol was invented in 1527 by Robert Recorde. He chose a pair of parallel lines of the same length because "noe .2. thynges, can be moare equalle." Note that this axiom is still valid even when any two or all three of , , and are replaced with the same variable since they do not have any distinct variable (Metamath's $d) restrictions. Because of this, we say that these three variables are "bundled" (a term coined by Raph Levien). (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | equtrr 1695 | A transitive law for equality. Lemma L17 in [Megill] p. 446 (p. 14 of the preprint). (Contributed by NM, 23-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | equequ1 1696 | An equivalence law for equality. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 10-Dec-2017.) |

Theorem | equequ1OLD 1697 | Obsolete version of equequ1 1696 as of 12-Nov-2017. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (New usage is discouraged.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |

Theorem | equequ2 1698 | An equivalence law for equality. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 4-Aug-2017.) |

Theorem | stdpc6 1699 | One of the two equality axioms of standard predicate calculus, called reflexivity of equality. (The other one is stdpc7 1942.) Axiom 6 of [Mendelson] p. 95. Mendelson doesn't say why he prepended the redundant quantifier, but it was probably to be compatible with free logic (which is valid in the empty domain). (Contributed by NM, 16-Feb-2005.) |

Theorem | equtr2 1700 | A transitive law for equality. (Contributed by NM, 12-Aug-1993.) (Proof shortened by Andrew Salmon, 25-May-2011.) |
