As is known, Aristotel was the first person who explicitly and
definitely postulated: "Infinitum actu non datur".
I think it would be interesting (for different goals :-) ) to list all
his famous like-minded persons. Today, I have the following very
approximate beginning of such the list:
ARISTOTEL, LEIBNIZ, GAUSS, CAUCHY, POINCARE, BROUWER, WEYL, LUZIN, ...
I would be very thankful for an addition of new names (it is desirable
with exact citations and references).
Thanks in advance,
