But infinite subsets in question will contain an uncountable number of elements. That is why I'm not sure that problems with assigning measures to countably infinite sets (such as your example above re even and square numbers) are really such a problem. -- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Prof Russell Standish Phone 0425 253119 (mobile) Principal, High Performance Coders Visiting Professor of Mathematics hpco...@hpcoders.com.au University of New South Wales http://www.hpcoders.com.au ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
