Infinity Axiom: The infinity axiom is an axiom of set theory, which ensures that there are infinite sets. It is formulated in e.g. such a way that a construction rule is specified for the occurrence of elements of a described set. If {x} is the successor of x, the continuation is formed by the union x U {x}. See also set theory, successor, unification, axioms.
