Overspill

In non-standard analysis, a branch of mathematics, overspill is a widely used proof technique. It is based on the fact that the set of standard natural numbers N is not an internal subset of the internal set *N of hypernatural numbers. By applying the induction principle for the standard integers N and the transfer principle we get the principle of internal induction: For any internal subset A of *N, if ⁕1 is an element of A, and ⁕for every element n of A, n + 1 also belongs to A, then If N were an internal set, then instantiating the internal induction principle with N, it would follow N = *N which is known not to be the case. The overspill principle has a number of useful consequences: ⁕The set of standard hyperreals is not internal. ⁕The set of bounded hyperreals is not internal. ⁕The set of infinitesimal hyperreals is not internal. In particular: ⁕If an internal set contains all infinitesimal non-negative hyperreals, it contains a positive non-infinitesimal hyperreal. ⁕If an internal set contains N it contains an unbounded element of *N.
