This clear and well-developed approach to axiomatic set theory is geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.

A proof by induction consists of two cases. The first, the base case (or basis), proves the statement for n = 0 without assuming any knowledge of other cases.

The second case, the induction step, proves that if the statement holds for any given case n = k, then it must also hold for the next case n = k + 1.

These two steps establish that the statement holds for every natural number n.Shop Rational SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses Model B Single Electric Combi Oven - /V, 3 Phase, 19 kW.
