Shadows #

This file defines shadows of a set family. The shadow of a set family is the set family of sets we get by removing any element from any set of the original family. If one pictures finset α as a big hypercube (each dimension being membership of a given element), then taking the shadow corresponds to projecting each finset down once in all available directions.

Main definitions #

Notation #

We define notation in locale finset_family:

We also maintain the convention that a, b : α are elements of the ground type, s, t : finset α are finsets, and 𝒜, ℬ : finset (finset α) are finset families.

The shadow of a set family 𝒜 is all sets we can get by removing one element from any set in 𝒜, and the (k times) iterated shadow (shadow^[k]) is all sets we can get by removing k elements from any set in 𝒜.
