By Horst Herrlich

AC, the axiom of selection, due to its non-constructive personality, is the main arguable mathematical axiom. it's avoided by means of a few, used indiscriminately through others. This treatise exhibits paradigmatically that failures ensue with out AC they usually ensue with AC. Illuminating examples are drawn from varied parts of arithmetic, quite from normal topology, but additionally from algebra, order idea, ordinary research, degree conception, video game thought, and graph theory.
