Definition df-un 3572
Description: Define the union of two classes. Definition 5.6 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 16. For example, ({1, 3} ∪ {1, 8}) = {1, 3, 8} (ex-un 27251). Contrast this operation with difference (𝐴𝐵) (df-dif 3570) and intersection (𝐴𝐵) (df-in 3574). For an alternate definition in terms of class difference, requiring no dummy variables, see dfun2 3851. For union defined in terms of intersection, see dfun3 3857. (Contributed by NM, 23-Aug-1993.)
