Let $S$ be a set.

Let $\powerset S$ be the power set of $S$.

Let $\RR \subseteq \powerset S$ be a set of subsets of $S$.

$\RR$ is an algebra of sets if and only if the following axioms hold:

\((\text {AS} 1)\)   $:$   Unit:    \(\ds S \in \RR \)      
\((\text {AS} 2)\)   $:$   Closure under Union:      \(\ds \forall A, B \in \RR:\) \(\ds A \cup B \in \RR \)      
\((\text {AS} 3)\)   $:$   Closure under Complement Relative to $S$:      \(\ds \forall A \in \RR:\) \(\ds \relcomp S A \in \RR \)      

These criteria are called the algebra of sets axioms.
