## Does infimum belong to the set?

Yes. The infimum and the supremum need not be contained in the set.

### Can Supremum and Infimum be the same?

Yes, one point sets have the same supremum and infimum (actually the same maximum and minimum).

**What is Supremum and Infimum with examples?**

Another phrase for “supremum” is “least upper bound”, and another phrase for “infimum” is “greatest lower bound”. So for example the infimum and supremum of the open interval are 0 and 1.

**Does the supremum belong to the set?**

You can have sets that don’t contain their supremum. A simple example is the set (0,1): the supremum of this set is 1 since 1 is greater than or equal to any element of this set, but it is also the lowest possible upper bound. Clearly 1 is not in the set either.

## What is the difference between the maximum and the supremum of a set?

In terms of sets, the maximum is the largest member of the set, while the supremum is the smallest upper bound of the set.

### Does every set have a supremum?

The Supremum Property: Every nonempty set of real numbers that is bounded above has a supremum, which is a real number. Every nonempty set of real numbers that is bounded below has an infimum, which is a real number.

**What is the supremum of a set example?**

Examples: Supremum or Infimum of a Set S Examples 6. Every finite subset of R has both upper and lower bounds: sup{1, 2, 3} = 3, inf{1, 2, 3} = 1. If a

**What is the difference between supremum and maximum?**

## Is Infimum same as minimum?

More generally, if a set has a smallest element, then the smallest element is the infimum for the set. In this case, it is also called the minimum of the set.

### Is the maximum of a set always the supremum?

The difference between supremum and maximum is that for bounded, infinite sets, the maximum may not exist, but the supremum always does. Consider the set (0,1). Whenever the maximum exists, it is equal to the supremum. Conversely, if the supremum lies in the set, then the maximum exists and is equal to this supremum.

**What is the supremum and the infimum of s?**

A number b is said to be the supremum of S, denoted as Sup S = b if Let S be a non-empty set of real numbers. A number a is the infimum of S denoted as inf S = a if Q: Show that if the supremum and the infimum exist, they must be unique. Let S be a set and assume that b is a supremum for S.

**What does it mean to be the supremum of a set?**

– Supremum of A means that u need to be the least upper bound Infimum related to a set A that is bounded below means that any number u such that it satisfied the following conditions: Q : State the definitions of supremum and infimum of a non-empty set in R. Let S be a non-empty set of real numbers.

## What is the infimum of a subset of a set?

The infimum of a subset S of a partially ordered set P, assuming it exists, does not necessarily belong to S. If it does, it is a minimum or least element of S. Similarly, if the supremum of S belongs to S, it is a maximum or greatest element of S.

### Does the supremum or least upper bound have to be an element?

It is not necessary that supremum or least upper bound has to be an element of the set S. In the above example, 1 is not a member of set S. An upper bound for a set S is a number U B such that x ≤ U B for all x ∈ S. If U B is the smallest or least upper bound for the set S, then U B is called as supremum.
