# Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms

• Equality of sets: If $X$ and $Y$ are sets, and $x\in X$ iff $x\in Y$, then $X=Y$.

• Pair set: If $X$ and $Y$ are sets, then there is a set $Z$ containing only $X$ and $Y$.

• Union (http://planetmath.org/Union) over a set: If $X$ is a set, then there exists a set that contains every element of each $x\in X$.

• : If $X$ is a set, then there exists a set $\mathcal{P}(x)$ with the property that $Y\in\mathcal{P}(x)$ iff any element $y\in Y$ is also in $X$.

• Replacement axiom: Let $F(x,y)$ be some formula   . If, for all $x$, there is exactly one $y$ such that $F(x,y)$ is true, then for any set $A$ there exists a set $B$ with the property that $b\in B$ iff there exists some $a\in A$ such that $F(a,b)$ is true.

• : Let $F(x)$ be some formula. If there is some $x$ that makes $F(x)$ true, then there is a set $Y$ such that $F(Y)$ is true, but for no $y\in Y$ is $F(y)$ true.

• Existence of an infinite set  : There exists a non-empty set $X$ with the property that, for any $x\in X$, there is some $y\in X$ such that $x\subseteq y$ but $x\neq y$.

• : If $X$ is a set and $P$ is a condition on sets, there exists a set $Y$ whose members are precisely the members of $X$ satisfying $P$. (This axiom is also occasionally referred to as the ).
