**Tarski's axioms**, due to Alfred Tarski, are an axiom set for the substantial fragment of Euclidean geometry, called "elementary," that is formulable in first-order logic with identity, and requiring no set theory (Tarski 1959). Other modern axiomizations of Euclidean geometry are those by Hilbert and George Birkhoff.

### Famous quotes containing the word axioms:

“The *axioms* of physics translate the laws of ethics. Thus, “the whole is greater than its part;” “reaction is equal to action;” “the smallest weight may be made to lift the greatest, the difference of weight being compensated by time;” and many the like propositions, which have an ethical as well as physical sense. These propositions have a much more extensive and universal sense when applied to human life, than when confined to technical use.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
