Uncountable
Uncountably Infinite

Describes a set which contains more elements than the set of integers. Formally, an uncountably infinite set is an infinite set that cannot have its elements put into one-to-one correspondence with the set of integers.

For example, the set of real numbers is uncountably infinite.
