# [Math] Is the number of dimensions in Hilbert Space countable infinity or uncountable infinity

Hilbert Space is an "infinity" dimensional vector space. Does the "infinity" means $\aleph^0$ or $\aleph^1$ ? Or it does not matter at all?

Math newbie thanks you.

Could you please up vote for once so I could comment on others' posts?

But it's useful and routine to think of the countable set of sequences with just one nonzero entry that's $1$ as a basis (the standard basis) for purposes of analysis: every sequence is a limit in the Hilbert space topology of finite sums of those basis elements - i.e. a linear combination of (possibly) infinitely many of them.
