So where should we start, O fearless leader? I must admit, the lack of LaTeX is going to hurt a bit here. The settheoretic infinities use nonLatin characters (omega, aleph, beth) not to mention different fonts (Fraktur? for c, the cardinality of the continuum). Also, I don't see a way to attach files. Maybe if I feel the need for advanced formatting I'll just put a pdf up n my site for you.

Yes, I can see how using a pdf file in your website might be easier than having to type out the names of greek and hebrew characters. Another possibility might be to create a topic in the AoPS forum, and post a link to it here. A drawback of that would be that people would have to register there in order to post, but it might make a good stopgap (although I'm not sure if their $\LaTeX$ includes hebrew letters).

I have set up this topic in the Art of Problem Solving forum.

Sounds like a good stopgap for now. By the way, I'm known as Caradhras on AoPS forum. ( I sighed up there a while back, although I haven't done much there so far. )

Man! It's nice to have Latex again...

If you respond to this topic in the AoPS forum, but have a different username there than here, please post here with your username there.

I don't have an account on that forum, but frankly making the whole thing in LaTeX (rather than just parts, as is usually done on the forums) is more attractive to me anyway. http://math.crg4.com/infty.pdf

If anyone has specific aspects of \infty that they are particularly interested in, I'm sure CRGreathouse will be happy to expand on those areas within the pdf, as well.

What is the cardinality of the set consisting of the types of infinity?
