Problem 35E

Show that there is no one-to-one correspondence from the set of positive integers to the power set of the set of positive integers. [Hint: Assume that there is such a one- to-one correspondence. Represent a subset of the set of positive integers as an infinite bit string with ith bit 1 if i belongs to the subset and 0 otherwise. Suppose that you can list these infinite strings in a sequence indexed by the positive integers. Construct a new bit string with its ith bit equal to the complement of the ith bit of the ith string in the list. Show that this new bit string cannot appear in the list.]
