# Cardinals and ordinals

Relationships between cardinals and ordinals, properties of cardinals that are proved using ordinals.

## Main definitions and results

• 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) = ℵ₁, etc. It is an order isomorphism between ordinals and cardinals.
• The aleph function gives the infinite cardinals listed by their ordinal index. aleph 0 = ω, aleph 1 = succ ω is the first uncountable cardinal, and so on.

• mul_eq_max and add_eq_max state that the product (resp. sum) of two infinite cardinals is just their maximum. Several variations around this fact are also given.

• mk_list_eq_mk : when α is infinite, α and list α have the same cardinality.
• simp lemmas for inequalities between bit0 a and bit1 b are registered, making simp able to prove inequalities about numeral 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.

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 }
