Publisher Synopsis

"In fewer than 150 pages Vilenkin has packed a whole course on infinity: its history, philosophy, and mathematical theory. Abe Shenitzer's translation is very smooth and natural... When fractals have gone out of style, and chaos is no longer the flavor of the month, some kind of 'geometric set theory' or 'set-theoretic geometry' may very well remain, and In Search of Infinity may still be the best introduction to it."--American Mathematical Monthly Read more...
