Definition df-iun 3706
Description: Define indexed union. Definition indexed union in [Stoll] p. 45. In most applications,  A is independent of  x (although this is not required by the definition), and  B depends on  x i.e. can be read informally as  B ( x ). We call  x the index,  A the index set, and  B the indexed set. In most books,  x  e.  A is written as a subscript or underneath a union symbol  U.. We use a special union symbol  U_ to make it easier to distinguish from plain class union. In many theorems, you will see that  x and 
A are in the same distinct variable group (meaning  A cannot depend on  x) and that  B and  x do not share a distinct variable group (meaning that can be thought of as  B ( x ) i.e. can be substituted with a class expression containing 
x). An alternate definition tying indexed union to ordinary union is dfiun2 3738. Theorem uniiun 3757 provides a definition of ordinary union in terms of indexed union. (Contributed by NM, 27-Jun-1998.)
