Cardinal NumbersDate: 03/20/2001 at 08:38:09 From: Katie Subject: Cardinals Is there a largest cardinal? If there is, how do you express it? Date: 03/20/2001 at 14:09:51 From: Doctor Rob Subject: Re: Cardinals Thanks for writing to Ask Dr. Math, Katie. No, there is no largest cardinal. If c is a cardinal, 2^c > c, and 2^c is a larger cardinal than c. - Doctor Rob, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
