Abstract: We introduce the notion of weakly (strongly) infinite real rank for unital C *-algebras. It is shown that a compact space X is weakly (strongly) infine-dimensional if and only if C(X) has weakly (strongly) infinite real rank. Some other properties of this concept are also investigated. In particular, we show that the group C *-algebra C * (F1) of the free group on countable number of generators has strongly infinite real rank.
