What is a set? This course will go over 5 of the axioms of ZFC set theory, and it will examine how these simple axioms can be used to construct common mathematical tools like ordered pairs, functions, and Cartesian products. It will also discuss common ideas and tricks in set-theoretic proofs. Based on Paul Halmos' Naive Set Theory. Led by Kellen Brosnahan.
