The book presents a new methodology that allows one to represent infinite and infinitesimal numbers by a finite number of symbols and to execute arithmetical operations with all of them in the same manner as we are used to do with finite quantities. The new approach is not related to the non-standard analysis and infinity is considered in the book in a coherent way different from those proposed by Georg Cantor, Abraham Robinson, and John Conway. However, the new approach does not contradict Cantor, it evolves his theory and supplies new more powerful tools to deal with different infinite and infinitesimal quantities.
From the methodological point of view, the principle of Ancient Greeks ‘The part is less than the whole’ is adopted and applied to all quantities (finite, infinite, and infinitesimal) and to all sets and processes (finite and infinite). The new positional system with the infinite radix introduced in the book allows one to consider infinite, finite, and infinitesimal numbers as particular cases of a unique framework. The new viewpoint gives detailed answers to many questions and paradoxes regarding infinite and infinitesimal quantities. Particularly, applications of the new approach to limit theory, measure theory, and set theory are given.
The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians, computer scientists, philosophers, physicists, and students. However, it is written in a popular way in order to allow any person having a high school education and interests in the foundations of these sciences to understand it easily.

The Infinity Computer (European patent EP 1728149, Russian patent 2395111, US patent 7,860,914)
The main difference of the new approach with respect to non-standard analysis theories is its strong computational character opening a new exiting area in the theory and practice of computations – Infinity Computing. European patent 1728149 issued 03.06.2009 introducing “Computer system for storing infinite, infinitesimal, and finite quantities and executing arithmetical operations with them” describes the Infinity Computer able to execute computations with infinite, finite, and infinitesimal numbers numerically (not symbolically) in a unique framework. Russian patent 2395111 has been granted 20.07.2010 and USA patent 7,860,914 has been awarded 28.12.2010.
There exist the first software prototype of the Infinity Computer and the Infinity Calculator able to execute arithmetical operations with numbers having finite parts and/or infinitesimal and infinite parts of different orders.
