Author:Hamkins, Joel David; and Gitman, Victoria
Description: This "home of large cardinal concepts on-line" offers a complete account of all the various concepts of infinity in mathematics, particularly a detailed account of the concepts of infinity arising in the large cardinal hierarchy. The wiki includes an upper attic ("the realm of large cardinals and the higher infinite, extending from inaccessibility to inconsistency"), middle attic ("surveying the infinite cardinals whose existence can be proved in, or is at least equiconsistent with, the ZFC axioms of set theory"), parlour (which "contains the truly vast finite numbers"), and playroom ("full of fun and paradox").
