Introduction to Transfinite Number (No Prerequisite Knowledge!)

by on May.05, 2011, under Workshops

On Monday May 16th, 19-21:00, I’ll be doing an introduction to transfinite numbers. Topics will include:

  • Cardinals and Ordinals
  • Cantor’s Diagonalization Argument
  • The Continuum Hypothesis
  • Transfinite Induction

Transfinite numbers are really cool, since, well they deal with infinity, don’t match your intuition’s about infinity, and have a tendency to drive people insane!

Unlike previous math workshops, there is no prerequisite knowledge for this workshop. It should be lots of fun! I hope to see you there.
