NuprlPrimitives
Nuprl Section: NuprlPrimitives - Explanations of Nuprl Primitives and Conventions

Basic Nuprl Documentation

These documents explain the basic concepts and methods used for mathematical expression in Nuprl. The primitive operators as well as basic nonprimitives are discussed.

See Structure, Principles and Printed Copies of the Basic Documents.

Below is a list of the main documents in a reasonable reading order. An approximate size in words is indicated for each, indicating a certain kind of emphasis. There is also a partial index to these documents by Emblematic Theorems, some of which are quite interesting.
