Definition df-if 3414
 Description: Define the conditional operator. Read if(𝜑, 𝐴, 𝐵) as "if 𝜑 then 𝐴 else 𝐵." See iftrue 3418 and iffalse 3421 for its values. In mathematical literature, this operator is rarely defined formally but is implicit in informal definitions such as "let f(x)=0 if x=0 and 1/x otherwise." In the absence of excluded middle, this will tend to be useful where 𝜑 is decidable (in the sense of df-dc 784). (Contributed by NM, 15-May-1999.)
