Infinity has a relationship with mathematics proven by the existence of countable infinity and continuum infinity. Countably infinite numbers is any set which can be put in a one-to-one correspondence with the natural numbers (or integers) so that a prescription can be given for identifying its members one at a time is called a countably infinite (or denumerably infinite) set. Once one countable set is given, any other set which can be put into a one-to-one correspondence with is also countable. Countably infinite sets have cardinal number aleph-0. While on the other hand, continuously infinite numbers, also known as continuum hypothesis, proved by the German mathematician Georg Cantor, states that there is no infinite set with a cardinal number between that of the "small" infinite set of integers and the "large" infinite set of real numbers (the "continuum").

Infinity also has a relationship with physics which can be seen and proved by the theoretical applications of physical infinity. The practice of refusing infinite values for measurable quantities does not come from a priori or ideological motivations, but rather from more methodological and pragmatic motivations. One of the needs of any physical and scientific theory is to give usable formulas that...

...Question 1: was infinity a good LBO candidate?
On the basis of our analysis set forth below, we believe that Infinity Carpets was not a viable LBO candidate. We have answered this question analyzing the various criteria typically looked in a possible LBO scenario, where 1 means low risk and 10 means high risk.
Criteria Rank Comments
Cyclicality/volatility 7 Strong dependence on housing market even though good record during recession (p. 2, paragraph 4)....

The Fault in Our Stars: A Story of Little Infinities
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” –John Green
Like any good book, The Fault in Our Stars is the kind of movie that should be experienced by all. It is a romantic comedy drama, based on the best-selling novel...

...Levinas, Totality and Infinity, 21-30: Preface
Levinas begins the preface by opposing to morality its opposite, that of war.
He writes, “Everyone will readily agree that it is the highest importance to know whether we are not duped by morality. Does not lucidity, the mind’s openness upon the true, consist in catching sight of the permanent possibility of war” (Totality and Infinity, hereafter cited as TI, p. 21).
With war, we see the opposite of morality:...

...Robust control systems may successfully be designed by ~'=-optimization,
in particular, by reformulating the design problem as a mixed sensitivity
problem.
Key Words--~=-optimal control; robust control.
Abstract--The paper presents a tutorial exposition of
~=-optimal regulation theory, emphasizing the relevance of
the mixed sensitivity problem for robust control system
design.
