Definition df-r1 8173
Description: Define the cumulative hierarchy of sets function, using Takeuti and Zaring's notation ( R1). Starting with the empty set, this function builds up layers of sets where the next layer is the power set of the previous layer (and the union of previous layers when the argument is a limit ordinal). Using the Axiom of Regularity, we can show that any set whatsoever belongs to one of the layers of this hierarchy (see tz9.13 8200). Our definition expresses Definition 9.9 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 76 in a closed form, from which we derive the recursive definition as theorems r10 8177, r1suc 8179, and r1lim 8181. Theorem r1val1 8195 shows a recursive definition that works for all values, and theorems r1val2 8246 and r1val3 8247 show the value expressed in terms of rank. Other notations for this function are R with the argument as a subscript (Equation 3.1 of [BellMachover] p. 477),  _V with a subscript (Definition of [Enderton] p. 202), M with a subscript (Definition 15.19 of [Monk1] p. 113), the capital Greek letter psi (Definition of [Mendelson] p. 281), and bold-face R (Definition 2.1 of [Kunen] p. 95).
