Basic relationships between sets
- Two sets S and T are said to be equal iff they have the same elements:
- S is a subset of T iff every element of S is also an element of T:
Examples: {a,b} ? {a,b,c} {a,b} ? {a,b}
Note that S=T iff S?T ? T?S
- S is a proper subset of T iff S is a subset of T but not vice versa:
- S and T are disjoint iff they have no common elements:
