Lecture 11 6 Axiom of Induction If T is a subset of N such that: 1. 1 œ T 2. for every k œ N , if k œ T, then k+1 œ T then T = N This is called the Axiom of Induction hypothesis conclusion implication within the hypothesis T 1 k œ T k+1 œ T N = 2 2 3 3 1 2

Lecture 11 7 Axiom of Induction If T is a subset of N such that: 1. 1 œ T 2. for every k œ N , if k œ T, then k+1 œ T then T = N Z does not have a smallest number Z Z Z does not hold Counter-example: T = {-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …} -1 a Axiom of Induction is a property of N It does not hold for Z.

Lecture 11 8 Well Ordering Principle The set N is well-ordered. Definition Let S be a non-empty subset of R . S is said to be well-ordered if every non-empty subset of S has a smallest element . Well-Ordering Principle It can be shown that Axiom of Induction is equivalent to Well-Ordering Principle . Which of the following is/are well-ordered ? A. [0, 1] B. { x œ Z | x > -2} C. A set with 100 real numbers.

Lecture 11 9 Principle of Mathematical Induction Let P(n) be an open sentence such that: 1.P(1) is true 2.For all k œ N , if P(k) is true, then P(k+1) is true Then P(n) is true for all n œ N Theorem (Principle of Mathematical Induction) Proof Let T be the set: T = {n œ N | P(n) is true} Given P(1) is true So 1 œ T (1) Given: If P(k) is true, then P(k+1) is true So if k œ T, then k+1 œ T (2) By axiom of induction, T = N So P(n) is true for all n œ N So N = {n œ N | P(n) is true} inductive hypothesis
