Continuum Hypothesis  Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments  
Continuum hypothesis: The continuum hypothesis is a statement in mathematics that says that there is no set of real numbers whose cardinality is strictly between that of the integers and that of the real numbers. In other words, there are no sets of real numbers that are bigger than the set of integers but smaller than the set of real numbers. See also Continuum, Real numbers, Sets, Set theory. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
