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 .

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 set B may or may not have a smallest element among the rationals.

Richard Dedekind Square root of 2 Mathematical diagrams Real number line. This page was last edited on 28 Octoberat This article needs additional citations for verification. 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”. By relaxing the first two requirements, we formally obtain the extended real number line.

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. From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.

Description Dedekind cut- dedeoind root of two. For each subset A of Slet A u denote the set of upper bounds of Dedekinrand let A l denote the set of lower bounds of A. Retrieved from ” https: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The cut itself can represent a number not in the original collection of numbers most often rational numbers.

Order theory Rational numbers. The following other wikis use this file: A related completion that preserves all existing sups and infs of S is obtained by the following construction: One completion of S is the set of its downwardly closed subsets, ordered coipure inclusion.

In this case, we say that b is represented by the cut AB. I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purposewithout any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia’s quality standards. 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.

Integer Dedekind cut Dyadic rational Half-integer Superparticular ratio. The specific problem is: Whenever, then, we have to do with a cut produced by no rational number, we create a new irrational number, which we regard as dwdekind defined by this cut A similar construction to that used by Dedekind cuts was used in Euclid’s Elements book V, definition 5 to define proportional segments.
