[tlaplus] Re: Type checking and custom infinite sets

A predicate does not define a set.   The TLA+ operators for constructing sets are listed under the "Sets" heading on the "Constant Operators" section of:


If the "set" you want to define cannot be expressed with them, it is probably not what mathematicians define to be a set.

This is specifically just for type checking, and thus should just be

to use the predicate.

Is there any way to do this?
