 Cantor, Georg  Famous mathematicians pictures, posters, gifts items, note cards, greeting cards, and prints 
  Cantor's image is flanked by the "Aleph", the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which Cantor used (accompanied by subscripts) in his descriptions of transfinite numbers  quite simply numbers which were not finite. 
  He distinguished between countable and uncountable sets, and was able to prove that the set of all rational numbers Q is countable, while the set off all real numbers R is uncountable, and therefore, though both were infinite, R was strictly larger. 
  The graphic set which backs Cantor's image began with an algorithm to generate the Cantor set, to which color was applied, and then universal operators related to color transition and magnification, ultimately resulting in a unique image whose essence was the Cantor set.
