It can be a simplification, in terms of notation if nothing more, to concentrate on one “half” — say, the lower one — and call any downward closed set A without greatest element a “Dedekind cut”.

To establish this truly, one must show that this really is a cut and that it is the square root of two. These operators form a Galois connection. Order theory Rational numbers.


The Dedekind-MacNeille completion is the smallest complete lattice with S embedded in it. A Dedekind cut is a partition of the rational numbers into two non-empty sets A and Bsuch that all elements of A are less than all elements of Band A contains no greatest element.

Public domain Public domain false false. From now on, therefore, to every decekind cut there corresponds a definite rational or irrational number Dedekind cut sqrt 2.

An irrational cut is equated to an irrational number which is in neither set. The specific problem is: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

If B has a smallest element among the rationals, the cut corresponds to that rational. The set of all Dedekind cuts is itself a linearly ordered set of sets. Similarly, every cut of reals is identical to the cut produced by a specific real number which can be identified as the smallest dede,ind of the B set.

Whenever, then, we have to do with a cut produced by no rational number, we create a new irrational number, which we regard as completely defined by this cut The set B may or may not have a smallest element among the rationals. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Every real number, rational or not, is equated to one and only one cut of rationals. This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat In this way, set inclusion can be used to represent the ordering of numbers, and all other relations greater thanless than or equal toequal toand so on can be similarly created from set relations.

This page was last edited on 28 Octoberat However, neither claim is immediate. Summary [ edit ] Description Dedekind cut- square root of two. In this case, we say that b is represented by the cut AB.


This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it. Description Dedekind cut- square root of two. It is straightforward to show that a Dedekind cut among the real numbers is uniquely defined by the corresponding cut among the rational numbers.

The important purpose of the Dedekind cut is to work with number sets that are not complete. Views Read Edit View history. A similar construction to that used by Dedekind cuts was used in Euclid’s Elements book V, definition 5 to define proportional segments. Retrieved from ” https: If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.

In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: Views View Edit History. Thus, constructing the set of Dedekind cuts serves the purpose of embedding the original ordered set Swhich might not have had the least-upper-bound property, within a usually larger linearly ordered set that does have this useful property.

A construction similar to Dedekind cuts is used for the construction of surreal numbers.
