Theorem aleph0 8874
Description: The first infinite cardinal number, discovered by Georg Cantor in 1873, has the same size as the set of natural numbers ω (and under our particular definition is also equal to it). In the literature, the argument of the aleph function is often written as a subscript, and the first aleph is written _0. Exercise 3 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 91. Also Definition 12(i) of [Suppes] p. 228. From Moshé Machover, Set Theory, Logic, and Their Limitations, p. 95: "Aleph...the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet...is also the first letter of the Hebrew word...(einsoph, meaning infinity), which is a cabbalistic appellation of the deity. The notation is due to Cantor, who was deeply interested in mysticism." (Contributed by NM, 21-Oct-2003.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 13-Sep-2013.)
