An algebra $A$ on a collection $X$ is a kin of subsets of this set closed below the operations of union and distinction of 2 subsets. the most subject of the e-book is the research of varied algebras and households of algebras on an summary set $X$. the writer exhibits how this can be regarding recognized difficulties by means of Lebesgue, Banach, and Ulam at the life of sure measures on summary units, with corresponding algebras being algebras of measurable subsets with recognize to those measures. specifically it truly is proven that for a undeniable algebra to not coincide with the algebra of all subsets of $X$ is comparable to the life of a nonmeasurable set with appreciate to a given degree. even if those questions aren't regarding mathematical common sense, many ends up in this region have been proved through ``metamathematical'' tools, utilizing the tactic of forcing and different instruments concerning axiomatic set conception. even though, within the current ebook, the writer makes use of ``elementary'' (mainly combinatorial) easy methods to examine homes of algebras on a collection. providing new and unique fabric, the ebook is written in a transparent and readable type and illustrated through many examples and figures. The publication might be valuable to researchers and graduate scholars operating in set conception, mathematical common sense, and combinatorics.
