Abstract

Infinity has long been an idea surrounded with mystery and confusion. Aristotle ridiculed the idea, Galileo threw aside in disgust, and Newton tried to step-side the issue completely. However, Georg Cantor changed what mathematicians thought about infinity in a series of radical ideas. While you really should listen to my full report if you want to learn about infinity, this presentation is simply gets your toes wet in Cantor’s concepts.
