Abstract

Through the centuries mathematicians and philosophers have wondered if size comparisons between infinite collections of objects can be made in a meaningful way. Does it make sense to ask if there are as many even numbers as odd numbers? What does it mean to say that one infinite collection has greater magnitude than another? Can one speak of different sizes of infinity?
