2.1.7 Conditional equality
(experimental)This is a very useless definition, which "abbreviates" as CondEq . What this display hides, though, is that the first expression, even though it has a shorter constant string, is actually much more complicated in its parse tree: it is parsed as (wi (wceq (cv vx) (cv vy)) wph), while the CondEq version is parsed as (wcdeq vx vy wph). It also allows us to give a name to the specific 3-ary operation . This is all used as part of a metatheorem: we want to say that and are provable, for any expressions or in the language. The proof is by induction, so the base case is each of the primitives, which is why you will see a theorem for each of the set.mm primitive operations.
The metatheorem comes with a disjoint variables assumption: every variable in
is assumed disjoint from except
itself. For such a
proof by induction, we must consider each of the possible forms of
. If it is a variable other than , then we have
CondEq
or
CondEq
,
which is provable by cdeqth 2979 and reflexivity. Since we are only working
with class and wff expressions, it can't be itself in set.mm, but if it
was we'd have to also prove CondEq (where Otherwise, it is a primitive operation applied to smaller expressions. In these cases, for each set variable parameter to the operation, we must consider if it is equal to or not, which yields 2^n proof obligations. Luckily, all primitive operations in set.mm have either zero or one set variable, so we only need to prove one statement for the non-set constructors (like implication) and two for the constructors taking a set (the forall and the class builder). In each of the primitive proofs, we are allowed to assume that is disjoint from and vice versa, because this is maintained through the induction. This is how we satisfy the DV assumptions of cdeqab1 2984 and cdeqab 2982. | ||

2.1.8 Russell's Paradox | ||

Theorem | ru 2991 |
Russell's Paradox. Proposition 4.14 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 14.
In the late 1800s, Frege's Axiom of (unrestricted) Comprehension, expressed in our notation as , asserted that any collection of sets is a set i.e. belongs to the universe of all sets. In particular, by substituting (the "Russell class") for , it asserted , meaning that the "collection of all sets which are not members of themselves" is a set. However, here we prove . This contradiction was discovered by Russell in 1901 (published in 1903), invalidating the Comprehension Axiom and leading to the collapse of Frege's system. In 1908, Zermelo rectified this fatal flaw by replacing Comprehension with a weaker Subset (or Separation) Axiom ssex 4159 asserting that is a set only when it is smaller than some other set . However, Zermelo was then faced with a "chicken and egg" problem of how to show is a set, leading him to introduce the set-building axioms of Null Set 0ex 4151, Pairing prex 4216, Union uniex 4515, Power Set pwex 4192, and Infinity omex 7340 to give him some starting sets to work with (all of which, before Russell's Paradox, were immediate consequences of Frege's Comprehension). In 1922 Fraenkel strengthened the Subset Axiom with our present Replacement Axiom funimaex 5296 (whose modern formalization is due to Skolem, also in 1922). Thus in a very real sense Russell's Paradox spawned the invention of ZF set theory and completely revised the foundations of mathematics! Another mainstream formalization of set theory, devised by von Neumann, Bernays, and Goedel, uses class variables rather than set variables as its primitives. The axiom system NBG in [Mendelson] p. 225 is suitable for a Metamath encoding. NBG is a conservative extension of ZF in that it proves exactly the same theorems as ZF that are expressible in the language of ZF. An advantage of NBG is that it is finitely axiomatizable - the Axiom of Replacement can be broken down into a finite set of formulas that eliminate its wff metavariable. Finite axiomatizability is required by some proof languages (although not by Metamath). There is a stronger version of NBG called Morse-Kelley (axiom system MK in [Mendelson] p. 287).
Russell himself continued in a different direction, avoiding the paradox
with his "theory of types." Quine extended Russell's ideas to
formulate
his New Foundations set theory (axiom system NF of [Quine] p. 331). In
NF, the collection of all sets is a set, contradicting ZF and NBG set
theories, and it has other bizarre consequences: when sets become too
huge (beyond the size of those used in standard mathematics), the Axiom
of Choice ac4 8098 and Cantor's Theorem canth 6288 are provably false! (See
ncanth 6289 for some intuition behind the latter.)
Recent results (as of
2014) seem to show that NF is equiconsistent to Z (ZF in which ax-sep 4142
replaces ax-rep 4132) with ax-sep 4142 restricted to only bounded
quantifiers. NF is finitely axiomatizable and can be encoded in
Metamath using the axioms from T. Hailperin, "A set of axioms for
logic," Under our ZF set theory, every set is a member of the Russell class by elirrv 7307 (derived from the Axiom of Regularity), so for us the Russell class equals the universe (theorem ruv 7310). See ruALT 7311 for an alternate proof of ru 2991 derived from that fact. (Contributed by NM, 7-Aug-1994.) |

2.1.9 Proper substitution of classes for
sets | ||

Syntax | wsbc 2992 | Extend wff notation to include the proper substitution of a class for a set. Read this notation as "the proper substitution of class for set variable in wff ." |

Definition | df-sbc 2993 |
Define the proper substitution of a class for a set.
When is a proper class, our definition evaluates to false. This is somewhat arbitrary: we could have, instead, chosen the conclusion of sbc6 3018 for our definition, which always evaluates to true for proper classes. Our definition also does not produce the same results as discussed in the proof of Theorem 6.6 of [Quine] p. 42 (although Theorem 6.6 itself does hold, as shown by dfsbcq 2994 below). For example, if is a proper class, Quine's substitution of for in evaluates to rather than our falsehood. (This can be seen by substituting , , and for for alpha, beta, and gamma in Subcase 1 of Quine's discussion on p. 42.) Unfortunately, Quine's definition requires a recursive syntactical breakdown of , and it does not seem possible to express it with a single closed formula.
If we did not want to commit to any specific proper class behavior, we
could use this definition The theorem sbc2or 3000 shows the apparently "strongest" statement we can make regarding behavior at proper classes if we start from dfsbcq 2994. The related definition df-csb 3083 defines proper substitution into a class variable (as opposed to a wff variable). (Contributed by NM, 14-Apr-1995.) (Revised by NM, 25-Dec-2016.) |

Theorem | dfsbcq 2994 |
This theorem, which is similar to Theorem 6.7 of [Quine] p. 42 and holds
under both our definition and Quine's, provides us with a weak definition
of the proper substitution of a class for a set. Since our df-sbc 2993 does
not result in the same behavior as Quine's for proper classes, if we
wished to avoid conflict with Quine's definition we could start with this
theorem and dfsbcq2 2995 instead of df-sbc 2993. (dfsbcq2 2995 is needed because
unlike Quine we do not overload the df-sb 1631 syntax.) As a consequence of
these theorems, we can derive sbc8g 2999, which is a weaker version of
df-sbc 2993 that leaves substitution undefined when is a proper class.
However, it is often a nuisance to have to prove the sethood hypothesis of sbc8g 2999, so we will allow direct use of df-sbc 2993 after theorem sbc2or 3000 below. Proper substiution with a proper class is rarely needed, and when it is, we can simply use the expansion of Quine's definition. (Contributed by NM, 14-Apr-1995.) |

Theorem | dfsbcq2 2995 | This theorem, which is similar to Theorem 6.7 of [Quine] p. 42 and holds under both our definition and Quine's, relates logic substitution df-sb 1631 and substitution for class variables df-sbc 2993. Unlike Quine, we use a different syntax for each in order to avoid overloading it. See remarks in dfsbcq 2994. (Contributed by NM, 31-Dec-2016.) |

Theorem | sbsbc 2996 | Show that df-sb 1631 and df-sbc 2993 are equivalent when the class term in df-sbc 2993 is a set variable. This theorem lets us reuse theorems based on df-sb 1631 for proofs involving df-sbc 2993. (Contributed by NM, 31-Dec-2016.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |

Theorem | sbceq1d 2997 | Equality theorem for class substitution. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2017.) |

Theorem | sbceq1dd 2998 | Equality theorem for class substitution. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2017.) |

Theorem | sbc8g 2999 | This is the closest we can get to df-sbc 2993 if we start from dfsbcq 2994 (see its comments) and dfsbcq2 2995. (Contributed by NM, 18-Nov-2008.) (Proof shortened by Andrew Salmon, 29-Jun-2011.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |

Theorem | sbc2or 3000* | The disjunction of two equivalences for class substitution does not require a class existence hypothesis. This theorem tells us that there are only 2 possibilities for behavior at proper classes, matching the sbc5 3016 (false) and sbc6 3018 (true) conclusions. This is interesting since dfsbcq 2994 and dfsbcq2 2995 (from which it is derived) do not appear to say anything obvious about proper class behavior. Note that this theorem doesn't tell us that it is always one or the other at proper classes; it could "flip" between false (the first disjunct) and true (the second disjunct) as a function of some other variable that or may contain. (Contributed by NM, 11-Oct-2004.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |
