Abstract

The concept of set and the abstract study of sets (known as set theory) are cornerstones of contemporary mathematics and, therefore, are essential components of the mathematical foundations of computer science. For the computer scientist, set theory is not an exotic, remote area of mathematics but an essential ingredient in a variety of disciplines ranging from databases and programming languages to artificial intelligence.
