Definition df-en 6864
Description: Define the equinumerosity relation. Definition of [Enderton] p. 129. We define  ~~ to be a binary relation rather than a connective, so its arguments must be sets to be meaningful. This is acceptable because we do not consider equinumerosity for proper classes. We derive the usual definition as bren 6871. (Contributed by NM, 28-Mar-1998.)
