No, the quote around a was suposed to distinguis it from article:-) I should have put quoyes around x,y,z, but being lazy.
What I meant is that Equality relation looks like this:
x y z a b
where x,y,z are from domain integers, and a and b from the domain of "i" and "j" letters.

No wonder you don't accept element 11. Because 11 \/ R produces a cartesian product of domains. If R /\ 00 is atomic, then 11 \/ R is an individual domain. Received on Fri Jun 22 2007 - 19:39:02 CDT
