(mathematics)infinite - 1. Bigger than any natural number. There are various formal set definitions in set theory: a set X is infinite if

(i) There is a bijection between X and a proper subset of X.

(ii) There is an injection from the set N of natural numbers to X.

These definitions are not necessarily equivalent unless we accept the Axiom of Choice.
