The theorem I am referencing is the following:

  • $\begingroup$ Also there is the diagonal argument, which is an extension of Cantor's theorem, but named differently. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'd guess that searching for cantor's theorem is:q may include many questions related to other results. (If you try to sort the results by active rather than by relevance, you will very likely find a few questions which are definitely not about this topic.) $\endgroup$ Jan 25 '17 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ To get a more realistic estimate, I would either try to add elementary-set-theory tag or search for "cantor's theorem" is:q and perhaps also "cantor theorem" is:q. (The last seem to return also questions about Heine-Cantor theorem.) Having said that, number of questions is not the only factor to be considered when discussing creation a new tag. $\endgroup$ Jan 25 '17 at 10:53
  • $\begingroup$ I voted to reopen your recent answer to this meta post. It seems to me that StackExchange's explicit disinterest is quite relevant! $\endgroup$ Apr 24 '18 at 15:15
