In mathematics, the phrase sufficiently large is used in contexts such as:
- is true for sufficiently large
which is actually shorthand for:
- such that is true .
This does not necessarily mean that any particular value for is known, but only that such an exists. The phrase "sufficiently large" should not be confused with the phrases "arbitrarily large" or "infinitely large".
Other uses in mathematics
