Sets (Informal) A collection of unique items (no repeats allowed) Notation : Use capital letters for sets, lower-case letters for set members x A means x is a member of set A x A means x is not a member of set A Examples : Z = { …, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, … } all integers Z + = { 1, 2, 3, … } positive integers N = { 0, 1, 2, 3, … } natural numbers (includes 0) Q rational numbers of the form p / q where p Z and q Z and q 0 R real numbers rationals, plus irrationals like π and 2 C complex numbers of the form ( a + bi ) where a , b R , and i = √ − 1
