Theorem ac2 9485
Description: Axiom of Choice equivalent. By using restricted quantifiers, we can express the Axiom of Choice with a single explicit conjunction. (If you want to figure it out, the rewritten equivalent ac3 9486 is easier to understand.) Note: aceq0 9141 shows the logical equivalence to ax-ac 9483. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by NM, 18-Jul-1996.)
Assertion
Ref Expression
ac2 𝑦𝑧𝑥𝑤𝑧 ∃!𝑣𝑧𝑢𝑦 (𝑧𝑢𝑣𝑢)
Distinct variable group:   𝑥,𝑦,𝑧,𝑤,𝑣,𝑢

Proof of Theorem ac2
Dummy variable 𝑡 is distinct from all other variables.
