Every real number, rational or not, is equated to one and only one cut of rationals. June Learn how deeekind when to remove this template message.

Order theory Rational numbers. One completion of S is the set of its downwardly closed subsets, ordered by inclusion. Views View Edit History. 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. A related completion that preserves all existing sups and infs of S is obtained by the following construction: It is straightforward to show that a Dedekind cut among the real numbers is uniquely defined by the corresponding cut among the rational numbers.


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.

Views Read Edit View history. Dedekind cut sqrt 2.

In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: Integer Dedekind cut Dyadic rational Half-integer Superparticular ratio. The important purpose of the Dedekind cut is to work with number sets that are not complete. A construction similar to Dedekind cuts is used for the construction of surreal numbers.

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. By relaxing the first two requirements, we formally obtain the extended real number line.

It can be a simplification, in terms of notation if nothing more, to concentrate on one “half” — say, the lower one — ve call any downward closed set A without greatest element a “Dedekind cut”. In this case, we say that b is represented by the cut AB.

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. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use coupute Privacy Policy.

Retrieved from ” https: Public domain Public domain false false. The set B may or may not have a smallest element among the rationals. Description Dedekind cut- square root of eedekind. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

Dedekind cut

The cut itself can represent a number not in the original collection of numbers most often rational numbers. This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia’s quality standards. This page dedekihd last edited on 28 Novemberat A similar construction to that used by Dedekind cuts was used in Euclid’s Elements book V, definition 5 to define proportional segments.


The set of all Dedekind cuts is itself a linearly ordered set of sets. 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.

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.

It is more symmetrical to use the AB notation for Dedekind cuts, but each of A and B does determine the other. The following other wikis use this file: 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.
