Moreno ANDREATTA and Stéphan SCHAUB, An introduction to Set Theory: The essential concepts of Allen Forte's and David Lewin's theories

The present paper is an introduction to the theoretical concepts at the basis of Set-Theory, of which it assumes no previous knowledge. A brief survey of their analytical applications is given, with the main purpose of showing the diversity of their nature. These particularly concern the "classical" approach of Allen Forte and the "transformational" one of David Lewin.
