## Reference on this?

I can't find any reference on this. Google only turns up PlanetMath when searching for "Siegel's Axiom". Doing it without the quotes doesn't really turn up anything either. Can someone provide a reference?

## axiom-joke (Re: Reference on this?)

It seems to me that this is sort of a joke: a convention for mathematical writing ;).

## Re: Reference on this?

I read on this in a German book by Beutelspacher called "Das ist o.B.d.A. trivial". It is a book on mathematical writing style. As it seems no one else has heard about this, so I might go and hunt down sources, when I have time for this.
