What is mean by Disjoint sets in Mathematics?

Two sets are considered disjoint if they have no elements in common.


Difference betweenDisjoint sets and pairwise disjoint sets?

Assuming that, by 'disjoint', you mean that a collection of sets has an empty intersection, here is the difference between pairwise disjoint and 'disjoint': If a collection of sets is pairwise disjoint, it implies that the collection is 'disjoint': If no two sets overlap, then no k sets would overlap for any k, since this would require the overlap of at least two sets i.e. you know for sure that k things aren't in contact at a common point if you know that no two of them are in contact with each other. However, if a collection of sets is 'disjoint' (so the overall intersection is empty), it doesn't mean that the collection is pairwise disjoint. For instance, you could have a collection of 4 sets containing two overlapping pairs, where no set in one pair overlaps with a set in the other. So the intersection of the whole thing would be empty without pairwise disjointness. You could have a few things in contact with each other without all of them sharing a point of contact.
