That depends on how the elements of the set are defined. Sage doesn't implement and infimum function in general. But some infimum's are limits, and Sage can certainly compute limits. The infimum on a finite set is obviously computable using `min`

.

What kind of solution did you have in mind?

I was thinking about the general infimum function... Anyway thank you for your response!
