Definition df-ec 7609
Description: Define the 𝑅-coset of 𝐴. Exercise 35 of [Enderton] p. 61. This is called the equivalence class of 𝐴 modulo 𝑅 when 𝑅 is an equivalence relation (i.e. when Er 𝑅; see dfer2 7608). In this case, 𝐴 is a representative (member) of the equivalence class [𝐴]𝑅, which contains all sets that are equivalent to 𝐴. Definition of [Enderton] p. 57 uses the notation [𝐴] (subscript) 𝑅, although we simply follow the brackets by 𝑅 since we don't have subscripted expressions. For an alternate definition, see dfec2 7610. (Contributed by NM, 23-Jul-1995.)
