A collection of sets, [ilmath]\mathcal{H} [/ilmath] is said to be hereditary if[1]:

  • [ilmath]\forall A\in\mathcal{H}\forall B\in\mathcal{P}(A)[B\in\mathcal{H}][/ilmath], in words:
    • for all sets [ilmath]A\in\mathcal{H} [/ilmath] all subsets of [ilmath]A[/ilmath] must be in [ilmath]\mathcal{H} [/ilmath]
