Theorem abeq2 2881
Description: Equality of a class variable and a class abstraction (also called a class builder). Theorem 5.1 of [Quine] p. 34. This theorem shows the relationship between expressions with class abstractions and expressions with class variables. Note that abbi 2886 and its relatives are among those useful for converting theorems with class variables to equivalent theorems with wff variables, by first substituting a class abstraction for each class variable.

Class variables can always be eliminated from a theorem to result in an equivalent theorem with wff variables, and vice-versa. The idea is roughly as follows. To convert a theorem with a wff variable 𝜑 (that has a free variable 𝑥) to a theorem with a class variable 𝐴, we substitute 𝑥𝐴 for 𝜑 throughout and simplify, where 𝐴 is a new class variable not already in the wff. An example is the conversion of zfauscl 4917 to inex1 4933 (look at the instance of zfauscl 4917 that occurs in the proof of inex1 4933). Conversely, to convert a theorem with a class variable 𝐴 to one with 𝜑, we substitute {𝑥𝜑} for 𝐴 throughout and simplify, where 𝑥 and 𝜑 are new setvar and wff variables not already in the wff. Examples include dfsymdif2 4001 and cp 8916; the latter derives a formula containing wff variables from substitution instances of the class variables in its equivalent formulation cplem2 8915. For more information on class variables, see Quine pp. 15-21 and/or Takeuti and Zaring pp. 10-13. (Contributed by NM, 26-May-1993.)
