The entire book contains much that might be relevant. The work quoted
is full of examples (especially chapter 15) of calculation involving
"actually" (Jaynes's term) infinite sets. This book is a laying down
of the "really trustworthy standards of rigor" (Jaynes's phrase) for
certain calculations involving infinite sets.

See the comments to Matheology § 042
