A set, [ilmath]A[/ilmath] is non-empty if:

Non-empty in

Suppose [ilmath]A[/ilmath] and [ilmath]B[/ilmath] are sets. We say "[ilmath]A[/ilmath] is non-empty in [ilmath]B[/ilmath]" if:

  • [ilmath]A\cap B\ne\emptyset[/ilmath] - literally, the part of [ilmath]A[/ilmath] that is in [ilmath]B[/ilmath] also is non-empty (see "disjoint in" also, "empty in" too)
