E=C/D where C is any given Cardinal and D is any R member of [0,1]. Please play with it. Last edited by doronshadmi; 6th October 2008 at 03:20 AM.

E is undefined if C is a Cardinal for an infinite set. A fairly trivial thing to play with. __________________ Real Science: NASA Finds Direct Proof of Dark Matter (another observation) (and Abell 520) "Our Undiscovered Universe" by Terence Witt: Review 1; Review 2
