The supremum is defined as the "LEAST" upper bound. The word "least" makes me think, there is a "MOST" upper bound, or at least something bigger than a "least" upper bound.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a set of numbers, is there anything larger than a supremum? Supremum is analogous to a maximum, but I don't understand what it's called "least" upper bound.
