Families of Sets

  • Iain T. Adamson


Let I and A be classes, F a functional relation between I and A. Then F is sometimes called a family of elements of A indexed by I (or with I as index class) and we write (F(i))iI instead of F. In particular, if E is a set then a family of elements of P(E) is called a family of subsets of E indexed by I. If F is such a family and we write X i = F(i) for each element i in I then we denote the family F by (X i )iI.
