Cardinality of the reals and intervals in the reals
View gist:1337718

So, @deathbob and myself were discussing whether the real numbers have the same cardinality as any interval of the real numbers. That is, if you pick an interval (say [0,1]), is it true that the cardinality of that interval is the same as that of the entire set of real numbers? Here's a defense of that idea.

Theorem 1: Pick any two intervals of the real numbers R. Then their cardinality is the same.

Proof: Let an interval [s,t] (with s < t) be the set of all real numbers between s and t, inclusive. To prove that the cardinality is equal, we need to show that you can write a one-to-one correspondence between any two such intervals -- say, [s,t] and [u,v].

There are lots of ways to do this, but a simple way to do it is just to map them linearly. Let's say you have the two intervals [0,1] and [0,2]. Take any real number in [0,1] -- say, 0.781. Now double it. You have just mapped it to a real number in [0,2], and you can
