### Discrete-Chapter 01 Sets

1. 1. Sets - 01 CSC1001 Discrete Mathematics 1 CHAPTER เซต 1 (Sets) 1 Introduction to Sets1. Definition of Sets Sets are used to group objects together. Often, but not always, the objects in a set have similar properties.In computer science, sets are basic data structures which are represented by one dimensional array andlinked list. Definition 1 A set is an unordered collection of objects, called elements or members of the set. A set is said to contain its elements. We write a  A to denote that a is an element of the set A. The notation a  A denotes that a is not an element of the set A.1) Sets symbol  Sets are denoted by using uppercase letters for example A, B, C, D.  Elements of sets are denoted by using lowercase letters for example a, b, c, d or 1, 2, 3, 4.  Groups of sets are denoted by using bracket "{" and "}", for example { … }, { … }.  Each elements of sets is separated by using comma ",", for example { 1, 2, 3, 4 } … .2) Example of sets A = { 1, 2, 3, 4 } or B = { a, b, c, d, e }Example 1 (2 points) Write set V which is represented all vowels in the English alphabet.Example 2 (2 points) Write set O which is represented odd positive integers less than 10.Example 3 (2 points) Write set E which is represented even negative integers greater than -10.Example 4 (2 points) Write set Z which is represented positive integers less than or equal 100.มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏสวนส ุนันทา (ภาคการศึกษาที่ 2/2555) เรียบเรียงโดย อ.วงศ์ยศ เกิดศรี
2. 2. 2 CSC1001 Discrete Mathematics 01 - Sets Another way to describe a set is to use set builder notation. We characterize all those elements in theset by stating the property or properties they must have to be members. For instance, the set O of all oddpositive integers less than 10 can be written as  O = { x | x is an odd positive integer less than 10 } or, specifying the universe as the set of positive integers, as +  O = { x  Z | x is odd and x < 10 } (In computer science we can donated by O = { x  Z+ | x % 2 = 0 and x < 10 }) These sets, each denoted using a boldface letter, play an important role in discrete mathematics:  N = { 0, 1, 2, 3, … }, the set of natural numbers (counting number)  Z = { …, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, … }, the set of integers +  Z = { 1, 2, 3, … }, the set of positive integers -  Z = { -1, -2, -3, … }, the set of negative integers  Q = { p/q | p  Z, q  Z, and q  0 }, the set of rational numbers  R, the set of real numbers +  R , the set of positive real numbers -  R , the set of negative real numbers  C, the set of complex numbers.Example 5 (2 points) Write set A which is represented complex numbers.Example 6 (2 points) Write set B which is represented negative real numbers but not equal -50.0.Example 7 (2 points) Write set C which is represented positive integers less than or equal 1000.Example 8 (2 points) Write set D which is represented even negative integers greater than -50.Example 9 (2 points) Write set E which is represented rational numbers p/q, p is member of real numbers, qis member of odd negative integers, and q is not equal 0.มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏสวนส ุนันทา (ภาคการศึกษาที่ 2/2555) เรียบเรียงโดย อ.วงศ์ยศ เกิดศรี
3. 3. Sets - 01 CSC1001 Discrete Mathematics 32. Equality of Sets Because many mathematical statements assert that two differently specified collections of objects are reallythe same set, we need to understand what it means for two sets to be equal. Definition 2 Two sets are equal if and only if they have the same elements. Therefore, if A and B are sets, then A and B are equal if and only if  x (x  A  x  B). We write A = B if A and B are equal sets.Example 10 (2 points) The sets {1, 3, 5} and {3, 5, 1} are equal or not equal, why?Example 11 (2 points) The sets {1, 3, 3, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5} and {1, 3, 5} are equal or not equal, why?Example 12 (2 points) The sets {1, 3, 5, 7} and {7, 5, 3, 3} are equal or not equal, why?The empty set There is a special set that has no elements. This set is called the empty set, or null set, andis denoted by . The empty set can also be denoted by { }. Often, a set of elements with certain propertiesturns out to be the null set.Example 13 (2 points) Write set A which is represented negative integers greater than 0.Example 14 (2 points) How many members are there in set A form Example 13?3. Venn Diagrams Sets can be represented graphically using Venn diagrams, named after the English mathematician JohnVenn, who introduced their use in 1881. In Venn diagrams the universal set U, which contains all the objectsunder consideration, is represented by a rectangle. (Note that the universal set varies depending on whichobjects are of interest.) Inside this rectangle, circles or other geometrical figures are used to represent sets.Sometimes points are used to represent the particular elements of the set. Venn diagrams are often used toindicate the relationships between sets. We show how a Venn diagram can be used in an example.มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏสวนส ุนันทา (ภาคการศึกษาที่ 2/2555) เรียบเรียงโดย อ.วงศ์ยศ เกิดศรี

Subsets It is common to encounter situations where the elements of one set are also the elements of a secondset. We now introduce some terminology and notation to express such relationships between sets. Definition 3 The set A is a subset of B if and only if every element of A is also an element of B. We use the notation A  B to indicate that A is a subset of the set B. We see that A  B if and only if the quantification  x(x  A  x  B) is true. Note that to show that Ais not a subset of B we need only find one element x  A with x  B. Such an x is a counterexample to theclaim that x  A implies x  B. We have these useful rules for determining whether one set is a subset ofanother:  Showing that A is a Subset of B To show that A  B, show that if x belongs to A then x also belongs to B.  Showing that A is Not a Subset of B To show that A  B, find a single x  A such that x  B.มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏสวนส ุนันทา (ภาคการศึกษาที่ 2/2555) เรียบเรียงโดย อ.วงศ์ยศ เกิดศรี

6. 6. 6 CSC1001 Discrete Mathematics 01 - Sets5. Size of Set (Cardinality of Set) Definition 4 Let S be a set. If there are exactly n distinct elements in S where n is a nonnegative integer, we say that S is a finite set and that n is the cardinality of S. The cardinality of S is denoted by |S|Example 19 (5 points) Find a cardinality of set1) Let A be the set of odd positive integers less than 10. ……………………...………………………………………2) Let B be the set of letters in the English alphabet. …………………………..………………………………………3) Let C be the empty set. ………………………………………………………….………………………………………4) Let D = {x | x  Z+ and x < 1000}. ……………………………………………..………………………………………5) Let E = {x | x  R, x  1 and x  2}. ……………………………………..….………………………………………6.

Cartesian Products Definition 7 The ordered n-tuple, which represented by (a1, a2, . . . , an), is the ordered collection that has a1 as its first element, a2 as its second element, . . . , and an as its nth element. Definition 8 Let A and B be sets. The Cartesian product of A and B, denoted by A  B, is the set of all ordered pairs or ordered 2-tuple (a, b), where a  A and b  B. Hence, A  B = {(a, b) | a  A  b  B}Example 26 (2 points) Find the Cartesian product of A  B if given A = {1, 2} and B = {a, b, c}Example 27 (2 points) Find the Cartesian product of B  A if given A = {1, 2} and B = {a, b, c}Example 28 (2 points) Find the Cartesian product of A  B if given A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {4, 5, 6}Example 29 (2 points) Find the Cartesian product of A  B if given A = {0, 2, 4, 8} and B = {-1, -2, -3}มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏสวนส ุนันทา (ภาคการศึกษาที่ 2/2555) เรียบเรียงโดย อ.วงศ์ยศ เกิดศรี

Operations of Sets Two, or more, sets can be combined in many different ways. For example, union of the sets, intersectionof the sets, difference of the sets and complement of the set Definition 1 Let A and B be sets. The union of the sets A and B, denoted by A  B, is the set that contains those ele- ments that are either in A or in B, or in both.

Let A = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9} and B = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}. Because A  B = , A and B are disjoint. When A and B are disjoint set, the result of |A  B| = |A| + |B|Example 37 (2 points) Let A = {-1, 1, 11, 21, 31} and B = {-2, 0, 2, 10, 12, 22, 32}.
