Naive Set Theory

I have posted some notes on naive set theory, available here. They cover the basic algebra of sets and functions. Many of the important identities are left as exercises to reader. A bonus section on Russell’s paradox shows that this “naive” approach to set theory is not sufficient for a rigorous theory of sets–axiomatic set theory is the only way to go.
