Start at the end, end at the start, 1 Infinitithe to 0.9 recurring." and have in image of $$1^{10^{-\infty}}.$$ Note that $10^{-\infty}=\lim_{x\to-\infty}10^x=0$ and so $$1^{10^{-\infty}}=1^0=1.$$ Your, ah, poetry doesn't mean anything to me. You haven't defined "Infinitithe" and I'm beginning to doubt your ability to define it.

In standard Real Analysis the syntax $x=\infty$ is shorthand for a process whereby we study what happens to an expression in $x$ when we allow $x$ to grow without bound. Thus $${1 \over \infty} = \lim_{x \to \infty} {1 \over x}$$ The right hand side has a precise mathematical meaning, but to paraphrase it is "the number that $1 \over x$ gets arbitrarily close to as $x$ gets larger and larger". There is a fairly large body of theory behind this definition covering things like whether there is a unique number that $1 \over x$ nears. However, what we can say is that $$\lim_{x \to \infty} {1 \over x} = 0$$ Last edited by v8archie; March 20th, 2015 at 05:08 AM.

This isn't a definition, just a list of conjugated forms.

I see that you are from England, so these are not "mis-translations" from some other language, but I don't recognize any of these words (except "infinity", but I don't understand your use of it here). Are you getting these words from some book or math paper or are these your own invention?

The Wikipedia page shows exactly how large it is. I think you are just making random stuff up. There's certainly more linguistics than mathematics to this idea thus far.
