Synopsis

Number.NEGATIVE_INFINITY

Description

Number.NEGATIVE_INFINITY is a special numeric value that is returned when an arithmetic operation or mathematical function generates a negative value greater than the largest representable number in JavaScript (i.e., more negative than -Number.MAX_VALUE).

JavaScript displays the NEGATIVE_INFINITY value as -Infinity. This value behaves mathematically like an infinity--for example, anything multiplied by infinity is infinity, and anything divided by infinity is zero.
