- Here is the unwieldy set theory axiom (
*https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarski%E2%80%93Grothendieck_set_theory#Implementation_in_Metamath*) mentioned in today's class (more properly called the Tarski-Grothendieck axiom). - For the one-axiom theory of equality, see Introduction to Mathematical Logic, by Mendelson. You can (legally) download a PDF from this link (
*https://link-springer-com.proxy.lib.uwaterloo.ca/book/10.1007%2F978-1-4615-7288-6*) if you have a UWaterloo library card. The axiom is Axiom S1 on page 117, and the proof of the "standard" equality axioms is on page 118, Proposition 3.2 (a), (b), and (c).
