General Structure of a Theorem
The purpose of a theorem is to present a mathematical truth. Of course, just stating that something is
true does not make it so. Mathematics history is littered with theorems that later were discovered to be
false. What that
Some Thoughts on How to Understand Proofs and to Write Them
Most people find it difficult to learn what constitutes a valid proof. Often ability in this
area comes about by some form of osmosis in which eventually it either sinks in or
it doesnt! I believ
Theorem Proofs Using the Method of Contradiction
As always, in one form or another, a theorem being proved boils down to the
following structure:
Hypotheses
Conclusion: Then Statement A
where A is the statement to be proven using the hypotheses and previo
Theorem Proofs for Several Equivalent Conditions
In this type of situation the theorem statement is of the following form:
Hypotheses
Conclusion: Then the following are equivalent:
(a)
(b)
(c)
where the number of statements (a), (b), (c), is usually at le
Structure and Proof of If and Only If Theorems
Form of the theorem statement
General hypotheses that hold throughout all parts of the theorem
Conclusion: A if and only if B (where A and B are statements)
This is really a concise way of stating two theorem
Proving Theorems Using the Principle of Mathematical Induction
The Principle of Mathematical Induction deals with the problem of proving an infinite number of statements.
Obviously it is impossible to prove each one separately, so we need a method of prov
