Sometimes it is easy to find a model for an axiomatic system, and sometimes it is more difficult. Euclid’s Elements, Book I 11 8. stream
This way of doing mathematics is called the axiomatic method. In our simple example, the three axioms could not be used to prove that some paths have no robots while also proving that all paths have some robots. The advantage of

Stating definitions and propositions in a way such that each new term can be formally eliminated by the priorly introduced terms requires primitive notions (axioms) to avoid infinite regress. <>

Creating an Abstract and an Axiomatic System Abstraction has led to a unification of addition of n -vectors and matrices consisting of a set V together with a closed binary operation, +, on V. The pair (V, +) is an example of an abstract system, meaning a set together with one or more ways to perform operations on the elements of the set. pair (V, +) is an example of an abstract system,
