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 .

The cut itself can represent a number not in the original collection of numbers most often rational numbers. Public domain Public domain false false. 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. Richard Dedekind Square root of 2 Mathematical diagrams Real number line. In this case, we say that b is represented by the cut AB. 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.

Retrieved from ” https: By relaxing the first two requirements, we formally obtain the extended real number line. A construction similar to Dedekind cuts is used for the couupre of surreal numbers.

Dedekind cut

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A related completion that preserves all existing sups and infs of S is obtained by the following construction: From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository. 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.


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. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia’s quality standards. Retrieved from ” https: Contains information outside the scope of the article Please help improve this article if you can.

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. 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 Coupude set.

One completion of S is the set of its downwardly closed subsets, ordered by inclusion.

See also completeness order theory. A similar couupre to that used by Dedekind cuts was used in Euclid’s Elements book V, definition 5 to define proportional segments.

Views Coupre Edit View history. 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. All those whose square is less than two redand those whose square is equal to or greater than two blue.


Description Dedekind cut- square root of two. Dedekind cut sqrt 2. This article needs additional citations for verification.

The specific problem is: The notion of complete lattice generalizes the least-upper-bound property of the reals. 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. However, neither claim is immediate. These operators form a Galois connection.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. It is straightforward to show that a Dedekind cut among the real numbers is uniquely defined by the corresponding cut among the rational numbers. This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: To establish this truly, one must show that this really is a cut and that it is the square root of two.
