upper bound
if s is a subset of real numbers, then an upper bound for the set S is a number a is an element of R s.t. s is less than or equal for each s is an element S. If the set S has an upper bound we say that S is bounded from above.
We call a real number y a lub of the set S if
1. y is an upper bound for S
2. if a is any upper bound for S, then y is less or equal to a.
if y is the lub and x is an element of R
x is less than y, then there exists an element s is an element s in set S s.t. x is less than s.
a nonempty finite subset S is a subset of real numbers always has a lub
in this case, the lub is simply the greatest element of S. Any subset S is a subset of real numbers that has a greatest element usu denoted max S has max S as a lub.
LUB property
A nonempty set of real numbers that is bounded from above has a lub
a is an element is a lower bound for the subset S of real numbers
if a is less or equal to s for each s is an element S, and a is a greatest lower bound of S if a is a lower bound of S and there exists no larger one. S is called bounded from below if it has a lower bound.
