Best Answer

In mathematics infinity is a defined numeric quantity greater in magnitude than any finite numeric quantity, whereas undefined refers simply to something lacking a definition (e.g. the result of division by zero is undefined, not infinity). If you study set theory, you will find there are many different infinities some greater in magnitude than others. Infinity though defined is not a simple concept.
