Infinity 

Description

Infinity is a property of the global object, or in other words, a variable in global scope.

The initial value of Infinity is Number.POSITIVE_INFINITY. The value Infinity (positive infinity) is greater than any other number. Mathematically, this value behaves the same as infinity; for example, any positive number multiplied by Infinity equals Infinity, and any number divided by Infinity equals 0.

As defined by the ECMAScript 5 specification, Infinity is read-only (implemented in JavaScript 1.8.5 / Firefox 4).

Examples

console.log(Infinity          ); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Infinity + 1      ); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Math.pow(10, 1000)); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Math.log(0)       ); /* -Infinity */  
console.log(1 / Infinity      ); /* 0 */
