Abstract:

Have you ever wondered about infinity?  Did you know that there are different types of infinity and some are bigger than others?  This week I will be talking about some basic set theory, and Cardinal Infinities!  This topic is really fun for people with various degrees of background in math, as it does not require too much background in any specific field of math.  So, I hope that you all come out this Saturday and enjoy the talk!
