Abstract Set Theory
by Thoralf A. Skolem
Publisher: University of Notre Dame 1962
Number of pages: 70
The book contains a series of lectures on abstract set theory given at the University of Notre Dame during the Fall Semester 1957-58. After some historical remarks the chief ideas of Cantor's theory, now usually called the naive set theory, are explained. Then the axiomatic theory of Zermelo-Fraenkel is developed and some critical remarks added.

These are informal notes for a course in Descriptive Set Theory. While I hope to give a fairly broad survey of the subject we will be concentrating on problems about group actions, particularly those motivated by Vaught's conjecture.
