cardinal arithmetic (for infinite cardinals)

The aleph' index function, which gives the ordinal index of a cardinal. (The aleph' part is because unlike aleph this counts also the finite stages. So aleph_idx n = n, aleph_idx ω = ω, aleph_idx ℵ₁ = ω + 1 and so on.) In this definition, we register additionally that this function is an initial segment, i.e., it is order preserving and its range is an initial segment of the ordinals. For the basic function version, see aleph_idx. For an upgraded version stating that the range is everything, see aleph_idx.rel_iso.

Equations
noncomputable def cardinal.aleph_idx  :

The aleph' index function, which gives the ordinal index of a cardinal. (The aleph' part is because unlike aleph this counts also the finite stages. So aleph_idx n = n, aleph_idx ω = ω, aleph_idx ℵ₁ = ω + 1 and so on.) For an upgraded version stating that the range is everything, see aleph_idx.rel_iso.

The aleph' index function, which gives the ordinal index of a cardinal. (The aleph' part is because unlike aleph this counts also the finite stages. So aleph_idx n = n, aleph_idx ℵ₀ = ω, aleph_idx ℵ₁ = ω + 1 and so on.) In this version, we register additionally that this function is an order isomorphism between cardinals and ordinals. For the basic function version, see aleph_idx.

Equations

The aleph' function gives the cardinals listed by their ordinal index, and is the inverse of aleph_idx. aleph' n = n, aleph' ω = ω, aleph' (ω + 1) = succ ℵ₀, etc. In this version, we register additionally that this function is an order isomorphism between ordinals and cardinals. For the basic function version, see aleph'.

Equations

This section proves inequalities for bit0 and bit1, enabling simp to solve inequalities for numeral cardinals. The complexity of the resulting algorithm is not good, as in some cases simp reduces an inequality to a disjunction of two situations, depending on whether a cardinal is finite or infinite. Since the evaluation of the branches is not lazy, this is bad. It is good enough for practical situations, though.

For specific numbers, these inequalities could also be deduced from the corresponding inequalities of natural numbers using norm_cast:

example : (37 : cardinal) < 42 :=
by { norm_cast, norm_num }
