The book presents a new
methodology that allows one to represent infinite and infinitesimal numbers by
a finite number of symbols and to execute arithmetical operations with all of
them in the same manner as we are used to do with finite quantities. The new
approach is not related to the nonstandard analysis and infinity is
considered in the book in a coherent way different from those proposed by
Georg Cantor, Abraham Robinson, and John Conway. However, the new approach
does not contradict Cantor, it evolves his theory and supplies new more
powerful tools to deal with different infinite and infinitesimal quantities. From the methodological point of
view, the principle of Ancient Greeks ‘The part is less than the whole’ is
adopted and applied to all quantities (finite, infinite, and infinitesimal) and
to all sets and processes (finite and infinite). The new positional system
with the infinite radix introduced in the book allows one to consider
infinite, finite, and infinitesimal numbers as particular cases of a unique
framework. The new viewpoint gives detailed answers to many questions and
paradoxes regarding infinite and infinitesimal quantities. Particularly,
applications of the new approach to limit theory, measure theory, and set
theory are given. The book is mainly addressed to
mathematicians, computer scientists, philosophers, physicists, and students.
However, it is written in a popular way in order to allow any person having a
high school education and interests in the foundations of these sciences to
understand it easily. 13.06.2014 Amazon.com Best Sellers Rank: #1 in Books > Science &

The Infinity Computer (European patent EP 1728149, Russian patent
2395111, US patent 7,860,914) The main difference of the new
approach with respect to nonstandard analysis theories is its strong
computational character opening a new exiting area in the theory and practice
of computations – Infinity Computing. European patent 1728149 issued
03.06.2009 introducing “Computer system for storing infinite,
infinitesimal, and finite quantities and executing arithmetical operations
with them” describes the Infinity Computer able to execute computations with
infinite, finite, and infinitesimal numbers numerically (not symbolically) in
a unique framework. Russian patent 2395111 has been granted 20.07.2010 and
USA patent 7,860,914 has been awarded 28.12.2010. There exist the first software
prototype of the Infinity Computer and the Infinity Calculator able to
execute arithmetical operations with numbers having finite parts and/or
infinitesimal and infinite parts of different orders. The interested investors are invited to contact the author.
