Definition df-ac 8518
Description: The expression will be used as a readable shorthand for any form of the axiom of choice; all concrete forms are long, cryptic, have dummy variables, or all three, making it useful to have a short name. Similar to the Axiom of Choice (first form) of [Enderton] p. 49.

There is a slight problem with taking the exact form of ax-ac 8860 as our definition, because the equivalence to more standard forms (dfac2 8532) requires the Axiom of Regularity, which we often try to avoid. Thus, we take the first of the "textbook forms" as the definition and derive the form of ax-ac 8860 itself as dfac0 8534. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 22-Feb-2015.)
