 for minus infinity
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  minus infinity
     The most negative value, not necessarily or even usually the
     simple negation of plus infinity.  In N bit twos-complement
     arithmetic, infinity is 2^(N-1) - 1 but minus infinity is
     -(2^(N-1)), not -(2^(N-1) - 1).
