Denumerable Set

denumerable set

[də′nüm·rə·bəl ′set]
(mathematics)
A set which may be put in one-to-one correspondence with the positive integers. Also known as countably infinite set.

Denumerable Set

 

(or countably infinite set), an infinite set whose elements can be indexed by the natural numbers—that is, a one-to-one correspondence can be established between the set of all natural numbers. As G. Cantor demonstrated, the set of all rational numbers and even the set of all algebraic numbers are denumerable, but the set of all real numbers is nondenumerable. Every infinite set contains a denumerable subset. The union of a finite or denumerable set of denumerable sets is also a denumerable set.

To develop this argument, Putnam first introduces the denumerable set MAG of all knowable physical magnitudes, and then OP, the set of values of the members of MAG at each of denumerably many spacetime points.
It is clear that the model M (the family M) includes absolutely denumerable sets. We consider the family M as the interpretation of the signature symbol "S " and will show that any axiom of ZFK is either true in the model M or it does not deny the existence of such a model.
The number of elements in one of these denumerable sets is called the cardinal number, or cardinality.
