A dedekind cut is, in full clarity, a bounded, open, rounded, located, twosided dedekind cut of rational numbers. The crucial point about the dedekind cut definition is that it makes it easy to show that if a set of real numbers has an upper bound, it has a least upper bound.

The proof that these two dedekind cuts are equal then relies on proving that these two set conditions are equivalent.
Dedekind treated the property as a theorem, so it takes intellectual e ort for readers of dedekind to recognized it as a good axiom dedekind didnt give the property a name dedekind didnt state the property in a succinct selfcontained way and its somewhat resistant to being stated in such a fashion 1629.
