fkulv:

A set X has cardinality ("Aleph zero"), if there is a bijection between X and the set of natural numbers.

The set of rational numbers has cardinality , the set of real numbers doesn't.

I remember hearing a while back about it... at the time and until now I thought it was called alpha null instead of aleph zero... thanks for clarifying and thanks for definition.

An engineer thinks that his equations are an approximation to reality. A physicist thinks reality is an approximation to his equations. A mathematician doesn't care.

Aleph is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet.
Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet.
