Dedekind, ‘Continuity and Irrational Numbers’, p. C’est à elle qu’il doit l’idée de la «coupure», dont l’usage doit permettre selon Dedekind de construire des espaces n-dimensionnels par-delà la forme intuitive .

By relaxing the first two requirements, we formally obtain the extended real number line. A construction similar to Voupure cuts is used for the construction of surreal numbers.

Moreover, the set of Dedekind cuts has the least-upper-bound propertyi. The important purpose of the Dedekind cut is to work with number sets that are not complete.

These operators form a Galois connection. One completion of S is the set of its downwardly closed subsets, ordered by inclusion.

The following other wikis use this file: This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat An irrational cut is equated to dedeknid irrational number which is in neither set.

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”. The specific problem is: If B has a smallest element among the rationals, the cut corresponds to that rational.

Similarly, every cut of reals is identical to the cut produced by a specific real number which can be identified as the smallest element of the B set. The cut itself can represent a number not in the original collection of numbers most often rational numbers. In other words, the number line where every real number is defined as a Dedekind cut of rationals is a complete continuum without any further gaps.

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.

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 Dedekidn contains no greatest element.

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 To establish this truly, one must show that this really is a cut and that it is the square root of two.

In this case, we say that b is represented by the cut AB. Views Read Edit View history. A related completion that preserves all existing sups and infs of S is obtained by the following construction: More generally, if S is a partially ordered seta completion of S means a complete lattice L with an order-embedding of S into L.


All those whose square is less than two redand those whose square is equal to or greater than two blue.

The cut can represent a number beven though the numbers contained in the two sets A and B do not actually include the number b that their cut represents.

Dedekind cut

The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong. In this way, set inclusion can be used to represent the ordering of numbers, and all other relations greater thanless than or equal to coupute, equal toand so on can be similarly created from set relations.

For each subset A of Slet A u denote the set of upper bounds of Aand let A l denote the set of lower bounds of A. It is straightforward to show that a Dedekind cut among the real numbers is uniquely defined by the corresponding cut among the rational numbers.
