I'm trying to reveiw the concepts of a proof class I took last summer, and there's one thing that's killing me. What is it called and what's the notation used when you "attach" something to a set. For example, my professor would define "the integers attach √2" as the set {a+b√2 : a, b in Z} or the complex numbers as "the real numbers attach i."

Thanks,
Tyler

YES! Thank you.

Is the "attach" verbal notation common? It isn't mentioned on the Wikipedia page. How do you usually say Z(i)?
