Sets and Data Structures

  • W. D. Wallis

Abstract

Sets are of fundamental importance in mathematics. The very number systems that we studied in the preceding chapter were all discussed in terms of a set of numbers. Many problems of discrete mathematics can conveniently be expressed in terms of sets, especially finite sets. For this reason, we need to discuss the properties of sets and develop language to talk about them.
