Abstract

Infinite series were present in Greek mathematics, though the Greeks tried to deal with them as finitely as possible by working with arbitrary finite sums a 1 + a 2 +... + a n instead of infinite sums a 1 + a 2 +.... However, this is just the difference between potential and actual infinity.
