  • inf denotes the infimum function.

    The infimum is the greatest lower bound of a set S, defined as a quantity m such that no member of the set is less than m, but if epsilon is any positive quantity, however small, there is always one member that is less than m+epsilon. When it exists (which is not required by this definition, e.g., inf R does not exist), the infimum is denoted inf S.
