Set Theory and its Philosophy

Michael Potter (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter defines operations of addition, multiplication, and exponentiation for ordinals. It takes as a model the recursive definitions of the corresponding operations for natural numbers (§ 5.4): the form the extended definitions should take at success or ordinals is clear; the form of the additional clause defining the behaviour of the operations at limit ordinals is also clear if it is required that the operations must all be normal in their second variable.

Keywords:   ordinals, additionan, multiplication, exponentiation, natural numbers
