Inductive Proof for use as proposition in paper

  1. Jan 12, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Model the concept of space time using Set Theory

    2. Relevant equations
    Discrete Mathematics
    Set Theory

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Try 1
    Proposition X

    The subset T is the set of ordered space time.
    The point of space time s is in T
    If s is in T then so are s-1 and s-2
    Only sequences so formed are in T.

    T={s:s s-n,...,s-2,s-1,s,s+1,s+2,...,s+n}
    The set T contains all of space time such that s is an element of T?

    Papa Joe says I need to change the title to say "inductive definition" not proof. We are to define the frames that will have to be rendered, not prove anything ;-)
