## countable setA set that is either finite or countably
infinite. A countably infinite set is one that can be put in one-to-one
correspondence with the natural numbers
and thus has a cardinal number ("size")
of aleph-null. Examples of countable sets
include the set of all people on Earth and the set of all fractions. ## Related entry• infinity## Related category• SETS AND SET THEORY | |||||
