Explanation: The cardinal number of a set is the number of objects in the set. http://mathoverflow.net/questions/22243/what-is-the-smallest...
Cardinal Number.— The cardinal number, then, of an assemblage a is something that is common to all the assemblages similar to a, or as we shall say, since classes are more amenable to mathematical treatment than properties, the class of all assemblages similar to a. We shall represent cardinal numbers by the letters ', P, V. ir, P, and the cardinal number of the as semblage a by the symbol Nc 'a. It may be shown that our ordinary 0 is en,and that l is Nc' ex, or the class of all the classes ex. http://gluedideas.com/content-collection/encyclopedia-americ...

Def. Set. Any collection of objects.
No restriction is placed on the nature of the objects in a set. They can be anything: points, lines, numbers, people, countries, etc. Thus the mathematical meaning of the word set is the same as the regular, nontechnical meaning of the word. Cardinal number of a set. Two sets are said to have the same cardinal number if and only if they can be put into one-to-one correspondence i.e. if and only if they are equivalent.
A set A is said to have the cardinal number n if and only if there exists a one-to-one correspondence between the elements of A and the natural numbers 1, 2, 3, .... , n.
Hawking spune cardinality numai o data (ce referire la integrale)si de 23 de ori cardinal. Adica asta confirma comentariul meu initial, si anume aceea ca o varianta este mult mai des utilizata decat cealalata.

Cardinalul unei multimi este numarul elementelor acelei multimi.
Exemplu:
M = {1;2;3;5;7}. Cardinalul multimii M este 5 (multimea M are cinci elemente).
In mathematics, the cardinality of a set is a measure of the "number of elements of the set". For example, the set A = {2, 4, 6} contains 3 elements, and therefore A has a cardinality of 3.
