The book contains a series of lectures on abstract set theory given at the University of Notre Dame. After some historical remarks the chief ideas of the naive set theory are explained. Then the axiomatic theory of Zermelo-Fraenkel is developed.

This classic of mathematics presents the best systematic elementary account of the modern theory of the continuum as a type of serial order. Based on the Dedekind-Cantor ordinal theory, it requires no knowledge of higher mathematics.

This document contains the mathematical foundation of set theory. Goal is the presentation of elementary results which are needed in other disciplines. Although the presentation is axiomatic the results shall match the mathematical usage.

This monograph develops Descriptive Set Theory from its classical roots to the modern 'effective' theory. The book emphasizes the foundations of the subject, and it sets the stage for the dramatic results established since the 1980s.
