Cantor's Attic aspires to provide a complete account of all the various concepts of infinity in mathematics, particularly a detailed account of the concepts of infinity arising in the large cardinal hierarchy, as well as the related notions. It is our goal that Cantor's Attic will be the natural home of these large cardinal concepts on-line, and we encourage everyone to link to the entries of Cantor's Attic whenever such large cardinal concepts are used on the web.

Cantor's attic was founded by Joel David Hamkins ("Climb into Cantor's attic") and Victoria Gitman ("Introducing Cantor's attic") in December 2011, but the continuing development of the site is a community effort of many users.
