Infinity \In*fin"i*ty\, n.; pl. Infinities. [L. infinitas;
pref. in- not + finis boundary, limit, end: cf. F.
infinit['e]. See Finite.]
[1913 Webster]
1. Unlimited extent of time, space, or quantity; eternity;
boundlessness; immensity. --Sir T. More.
[1913 Webster]

There can not be more infinities than one; for one
of them would limit the other.        --Sir W.
Raleigh.
[1913 Webster]

2. Unlimited capacity, energy, excellence, or knowledge; as,
the infinity of God and his perfections. --Hooker.
[1913 Webster]

infinity of beauties. --Broome.

4. (Math.) A quantity greater than any assignable quantity of
the same kind.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Mathematically considered, infinity is always a limit
of a variable quantity, resulting from a particular
supposition made upon the varying element which enters
it. --Davies & Peck (Math. Dict.).
[1913 Webster]

5. (Geom.) That part of a line, or of a plane, or of space,
which is infinitely distant. In modern geometry, parallel
lines or planes are sometimes treated as lines or planes
meeting at infinity.
[1913 Webster]

Circle at infinity, an imaginary circle at infinity,
through which, in geometry of three dimensions, every
sphere is imagined to pass.

infinity n. 1. The largest value that can be represented in a
particular type of variable (register, memory location, data type,
whatever). 2. `minus infinity': The smallest such value, not necessarily
or even usually the simple negation of plus infinity. In N-bit
twos-complement arithmetic, infinity is 2^(N-1) - 1 but minus infinity
is - (2^(N-1)), not -(2^(N-1) - 1). Note also that this is different
from "time T equals minus infinity", which is closer to a
mathematician's usage of infinity.

infinity

1.  The size of something infinite.

Using the word in the context of sets is sloppy, since
different infinite sets aren't necessarily the same size
cardinality as each other.

2.  The largest value that can be represented in
a particular type of variable ({register, memory location,
data type, whatever).
