# Improved Lower Bound for Frankl’s Union-Closed Sets Conjecture

### Abstract

We verify an explicit inequality conjectured in [Gilmer, 2022, arXiv:2211.09055], thus proving that for any nonempty union-closed family $\mathcal{F} \subseteq 2^{[n]}$, some $i\in [n]$ is contained in at least a $\frac{3-\sqrt{5}}{2} \approx 0.38$ fraction of the sets in $\mathcal{F} \$. One case, an explicit one-variable inequality, is checked by computer calculation.
