# Unified Approach to Real Numbers in Various Mathematical Settings

@inproceedings{Levsnik2013UnifiedAT, title={Unified Approach to Real Numbers in Various Mathematical Settings}, author={Davorin Levsnik}, year={2013} }

We provide a setting-independent definition of reals by introducing the notion of a streak. We show that various standard constructions of reals satisfy our definition. We study the structure of reals by noting that its pieces correspond to reflections on the category of streaks.

The core of the paper constructs the real line using two-sided Dedekind cuts, and shows that the closed interval is compact and overt, where these concepts are defined using quantifiers.

### Constructive set theory

There is a widespread current impression that the theory of Godel functionals, with quantifiers and choice, is the appropriate formalism for Bishop's book [1], but this is not so, and in more advanced mathematics the complexities become intolerable.
