16246 Cantor           Discovered 2000 Apr. 27 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Georg Cantor (1845-1918) was a German mathematician and professor at Halle. In a series of papers beginning in 1870 he developed the theory of infinite sets and was the first to recognize and prove that there are different degrees of infinity.
