Theorem | hsmex 8815* | The collection of hereditarily size-limited well-founded sets comprise a set. The proof is that of Randall Holmes at http://math.boisestate.edu/~holmes/holmes/hereditary.pdf, with modifications to use Hartogs' theorem instead of the weak variant (inconsequentially weakening some intermediate results), and making the well-foundedness condition explicit to avoid a direct dependence on ax-reg 8021.

In this section we add the Axiom of Choice ax-ac 8842, as well as weaker forms such as the axiom of countable choice ax-cc 8818 and dependent choice ax-dc 8829. We introduce these weaker forms so that theorems that do not need the full power of the axiom of choice, but need more than simple ZF, can use these intermediate axioms instead. The combination of the Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms and the axiom of choice is often abbreviated as ZFC. The axiom of choice is widely accepted, and ZFC is the most commonly-accepted fundamental set of axioms for mathematics. However, there have been and still are some lingering controversies about the Axiom of Choice. The axiom of choice does not satisfy those who wish to have a constructive proof (e.g., it will not satisfy intuitionistic logic). Thus, we make it easy to identify which proofs depend on the axiom of choice or its weaker forms. | ||
Axiom | ax-cc 8818* | The axiom of countable choice (CC), also known as the axiom of denumerable choice. It is clearly a special case of ac5 8860, but is weak enough that it can be proven using DC (see axcc 8841). It is, however, strictly stronger than ZF and cannot be proven in ZF. It states that any countable collection of nonempty sets must have a choice function. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2013.) |
Theorem | axcc2lem 8819* | Lemma for axcc2 8820. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 8-Feb-2013.) |
Theorem | axcc2 8820* | A possibly more useful version of ax-cc using sequences instead of countable sets. The Axiom of Infinity is needed to prove this, and indeed this implies the Axiom of Infinity. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 8-Feb-2013.) |
Theorem | axcc3 8821* | A possibly more useful version of ax-cc 8818 using sequences instead of countable sets. The Axiom of Infinity is needed to prove this, and indeed this implies the Axiom of Infinity. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 8-Feb-2013.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 26-Dec-2014.) |

Theorem | axcc4dom 8824* | Relax the constraint on axcc4 8822 to dominance instead of equinumerosity. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 18-Jan-2014.) |
Theorem | domtriomlem 8825* | Lemma for domtriom 8826. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2013.) |
Theorem | domtriom 8826 | Trichotomy of equinumerosity for , proven using CC. Equivalently, all Dedekind-finite sets (as in isfin4-2 8697) are finite in the usual sense and conversely. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2013.) |
Theorem | fin41 8827 | Under countable choice, the IV-finite sets (Dedekind-finite) coincide with I-finite (finite in the usual sense) sets. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 16-May-2015.) |
Fin^{IV} | ||
Theorem | dominf 8828 | A nonempty set that is a subset of its union is infinite. This version is proved from ax-cc 8818. See dominfac 8951 for a version proved from ax-ac 8842. The axiom of Regularity is used for this proof, via inf3lem6 8053, and its use is necessary: otherwise the set or (where the second example even has nonempty well-founded part) provides a counterexample. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 9-Feb-2013.) |
Axiom | ax-dc 8829* | Dependent Choice. Axiom DC1 of [Schechter] p. 149. This theorem is weaker than the Axiom of Choice but is stronger than Countable Choice. It shows the existence of a sequence whose values can only be shown to exist (but cannot be constructed explicitly) and also depend on earlier values in the sequence. Dependent choice is equivalent to the statement that every (nonempty) pruned tree has a branch. This axiom is redundant in ZFC; see axdc 8904. But ZF+DC is strictly weaker than ZF+AC, so this axiom provides for theorems that do not need the full power of AC. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 25-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | dcomex 8830 | The Axiom of Dependent Choice implies Infinity, the way we have stated it. Thus, we have Inf+AC implies DC and DC implies Inf, but AC does not imply Inf. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 25-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | axdc2lem 8831* | Lemma for axdc2 8832. We construct a relation based on such that iff , and show that the "function" described by ax-dc 8829 can be restricted so that it is a real function (since the stated properties only show that it is the superset of a function). (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 25-Jan-2013.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 26-Jun-2015.) |
Theorem | axdc2 8832* | An apparent strengthening of ax-dc 8829 (but derived from it) which shows that there is a denumerable sequence for any function that maps elements of a set to nonempty subsets of such that for all . The finitistic version of this can be proven by induction, but the infinite version requires this new axiom. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 25-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | axdc3lem 8833* | The class of finite approximations to the DC sequence is a set. (We derive here the stronger statement that is a subset of a specific set, namely .) (Unnecessary distinct variable restrictions were removed by David Abernethy, 18-Mar-2014.) (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 27-Jan-2013.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 18-Mar-2014.) |
Theorem | axdc3lem2 8834* | Lemma for axdc3 8837. We have constructed a "candidate set" , which consists of all finite sequences that satisfy our property of interest, namely on its domain, but with the added constraint that . These sets are possible "initial segments" of the infinite sequence satisfying these constraints, but we can leverage the standard ax-dc 8829 (with no initial condition) to select a sequence of ever-lengthening finite sequences, namely (for some integer ). We let our "choice" function select a sequence whose domain is one more than the last one, and agrees with the previous one on its domain. Thus, the application of vanilla ax-dc 8829 yields a sequence of sequences whose domains increase without bound, and whose union is a function which has all the properties we want. In this lemma, we show that given the sequence , we can construct the sequence that we are after. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 30-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | axdc3lem3 8835* | Simple substitution lemma for axdc3 8837. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 27-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | axdc3lem4 8836* | Lemma for axdc3 8837. We have constructed a "candidate set" , which consists of all finite sequences that satisfy our property of interest, namely on its domain, but with the added constraint that . These sets are possible "initial segments" of the infinite sequence satisfying these constraints, but we can leverage the standard ax-dc 8829 (with no initial condition) to select a sequence of ever-lengthening finite sequences, namely (for some integer ). We let our "choice" function select a sequence whose domain is one more than the last one, and agrees with the previous one on its domain. Thus, the application of vanilla ax-dc 8829 yields a sequence of sequences whose domains increase without bound, and whose union is a function which has all the properties we want. In this lemma, we show that is nonempty, and that always maps to a nonempty subset of , so that we can apply axdc2 8832. See axdc3lem2 8834 for the rest of the proof. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 27-Jan-2013.) |
Theorem | axdc3 8837* | Dependent Choice. Axiom DC1 of [Schechter] p. 149, with the addition of an initial value . This theorem is weaker than the Axiom of Choice but is stronger than Countable Choice. It shows the existence of a sequence whose values can only be shown to exist (but cannot be constructed explicitly) and also depend on earlier values in the sequence.

Theorem | axcc 8841* | Although CC can be proven trivially using ac5 8860, we prove it here using DC. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 2-Feb-2013.) |
Axiom | ax-ac 8842* |
Axiom of Choice. The Axiom of Choice (AC) is usually considered an
extension of ZF set theory rather than a proper part of it. It is
sometimes considered philosophically controversial because it asserts
the existence of a set without telling us what the set is. ZF set
theory that includes AC is called ZFC.
The unpublished version given here says that given any set , there exists a that is a collection of unordered pairs, one pair for each nonempty member of . One entry in the pair is the member of , and the other entry is some arbitrary member of that member of . See the rewritten version ac3 8845 for a more detailed explanation. Theorem ac2 8844 shows an equivalent written compactly with restricted quantifiers. This version was specifically crafted to be short when expanded to primitives. Kurt Maes' 5-quantifier version ackm 8848 is slightly shorter when the biconditional of ax-ac 8842 is expanded into implication and negation. In axac3 8847 we allow the constant CHOICE to represent the Axiom of Choice; this simplifies the representation of theorems like gchac 9062 (the Generalized Continuum Hypothesis implies the Axiom of Choice). Standard textbook versions of AC are derived as ac8 8875, ac5 8860, and ac7 8856. The Axiom of Regularity ax-reg 8021 (among others) is used to derive our version from the standard ones; this reverse derivation is shown as theorem dfac2 8514. Equivalents to AC are the well-ordering theorem weth 8878 and Zorn's lemma zorn 8890. See ac4 8858 for comments about stronger versions of AC. In order to avoid uses of ax-reg 8021 for derivation of AC equivalents, we provide ax-ac2 8846 (due to Kurt Maes), which is equivalent to the standard AC of textbooks. The derivation of ax-ac2 8846 from ax-ac 8842 is shown by theorem axac2 8849, and the reverse derivation by axac 8850. Therefore, new proofs should normally use ax-ac2 8846 instead. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by NM, 18-Jul-1996.) |
Theorem | zfac 8843* | Axiom of Choice expressed with the fewest number of different variables. The penultimate step shows the logical equivalence to ax-ac 8842. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by NM, 14-Aug-2003.) |
Theorem | ac2 8844* | Axiom of Choice equivalent. By using restricted quantifiers, we can express the Axiom of Choice with a single explicit conjunction. (If you want to figure it out, the rewritten equivalent ac3 8845 is easier to understand.) Note: aceq0 8502 shows the logical equivalence to ax-ac 8842. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by NM, 18-Jul-1996.) |
Theorem | ac3 8845* |
Axiom of Choice using abbreviations. The logical equivalence to ax-ac 8842
can be established by chaining aceq0 8502 and aceq2 8503. A standard
textbook version of AC is derived from this one in dfac2a 8513, and this
version of AC is derived from the textbook version in dfac2 8514.
The following sketch will help you understand this version of the axiom. Given any set , the axiom says that there exists a that is a collection of unordered pairs, one pair for each nonempty member of . One entry in the pair is the member of , and the other entry is some arbitrary member of that member of . Using the Axiom of Regularity, we can show that is really a set of ordered pairs, very similar to the ordered pair construction opthreg 8038. The key theorem for this (used in the proof of dfac2 8514) is preleq 8037. With this modified definition of ordered pair, it can be seen that is actually a choice function on the members of . For example, suppose . Let us try . For the member (of ) , the only assignment to and that satisfies the axiom is and , so there is exactly one as required. We verify the other two members of similarly. Thus, satisfies the axiom. Using our modified ordered pair definition, we can say that corresponds to the choice function . Of course other choices for will also satisfy the axiom, for example . What AC tells us is that there exists at least one such , but it doesn't tell us which one. (New usage is discouraged.) (Contributed by NM, 19-Jul-1996.) |
Axiom | ax-ac2 8846* | In order to avoid uses of ax-reg 8021 for derivation of AC equivalents, we provide ax-ac2 8846, which is equivalent to the standard AC of textbooks. This appears to be the shortest known equivalent to the standard AC when expressed in terms of set theory primitives. It was found by Kurt Maes as theorem ackm 8848. We removed the leading quantifier to make it slightly shorter, since we have ax-gen 1605 available. The derivation of ax-ac2 8846 from ax-ac 8842 is shown by theorem axac2 8849, and the reverse derivation by axac 8850. Note that we use ax-reg 8021 to derive ax-ac 8842 from ax-ac2 8846, but not to derive ax-ac2 8846 from ax-ac 8842. (Contributed by NM, 19-Dec-2016.) |
Theorem | axac3 8847 | This theorem asserts that the constant CHOICE is a theorem, thus eliminating it as a hypothesis while assuming ax-ac2 8846 as an axiom. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 6-May-2015.) (Revised by NM, 20-Dec-2016.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) |
CHOICE | ||
Theorem | ackm 8848* |
A remarkable equivalent to the Axiom of Choice that has only 5
quantifiers (when expanded to ,
primitives in prenex form),
discovered and proved by Kurt Maes. This establishes a new record,
reducing from 6 to 5 the largest number of quantified variables needed
by any ZFC axiom. The ZF-equivalence to AC is shown by theorem
dfackm 8549. Maes found this version of AC in April,
2004 (replacing a
longer version, also with 5 quantifiers, that he found in November,
2003). See Kurt Maes, "A 5-quantifier (,=)-expression
ZF-equivalent to the Axiom of Choice"
(http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/0705/0705.3162v1.pdf).

Theorem | ac4 8858* |
Equivalent of Axiom of Choice. We do not insist that be a
function. However, theorem ac5 8860, derived from this one, shows that
this form of the axiom does imply that at least one such set whose
existence we assert is in fact a function. Axiom of Choice of
[TakeutiZaring] p. 83.
Takeuti and Zaring call this "weak choice" in contrast to "strong choice" , which asserts the existence of a universal choice function but requires second-order quantification on (proper) class variable and thus cannot be expressed in our first-order formalization. However, it has been shown that ZF plus strong choice is a conservative extension of ZF plus weak choice. See Ulrich Felgner, "Comparison of the axioms of local and universal choice," Fundamenta Mathematica, 71, 43-62 (1971). Weak choice can be strengthened in a different direction to choose from a collection of proper classes; see ac6s5 8874. (Contributed by NM, 21-Jul-1996.) |

Theorem | zorn2 8889* | Zorn's Lemma of [Monk1] p. 117. This theorem is equivalent to the Axiom of Choice and states that every partially ordered set (with an ordering relation ) in which every totally ordered subset has an upper bound, contains at least one maximal element. The main proof consists of lemmas zorn2lem1 8879 through zorn2lem7 8885; this final piece mainly changes bound variables to eliminate the hypotheses of zorn2lem7 8885. (Contributed by NM, 6-Apr-1997.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 9-May-2015.) |
Theorem | zorn 8890* | Zorn's Lemma. If the union of every chain (with respect to inclusion) in a set belongs to the set, then the set contains a maximal element. This theorem is equivalent to the Axiom of Choice. Theorem 6M of [Enderton] p. 151. See zorn2 8889 for a version with general partial orderings. (Contributed by NM, 12-Aug-2004.) |
