This category contains results about Monotone Classes.

Let $X$ be a set, and let $\powerset X$ be its power set.

Let $\MM \subseteq \powerset X$ be a collection of subsets of $X$.

Then $\MM$ is said to be a monotone class (on $X$) if and only if for every countable, nonempty, index set $I$, it holds that:

$\ds \family {A_i}_{i \mathop \in I} \in \MM \implies \bigcup_{i \mathop \in I} A_i \in \MM$
$\ds \family {A_i}_{i \mathop \in I} \in \MM \implies \bigcap_{i \mathop \in I} A_i \in \MM$

that is, if and only if $\MM$ is closed under countable unions and countable intersections.
