*Definition:*
If `x` is a variable and `F` is a formula, then
the following are terms with bound variable `x`:

min _{x}Fmax _{x}F

The value of the first term is the smallest value of `x`
such that `F` holds; the value of the second term is the largest such
value:

min _{x}F:=suchx:F/\ (forally:F[x<-y] =>x<=y);max _{x}F:=suchx:F/\ (forally:F[x<-y] =>x>=y).
