However, the Examiner confuses breadth with indefiniteness. The Examiner is correct that by setting the predefined numerical accuracy to infinity, any finite sequence is within infinity of any infinite sequence. Such vast breadth may well be relevant to enablement or anticipation, but "breadth is not indefiniteness." SmithKline Beecham Corp. v. Apotex Corp., 403 F.3d 1331, 1341 (Fed. Cir. 2005) (quotation omitted). "Merely claiming broadly does not render a claim insolubly ambiguous, nor does it prevent the public from understanding the scope of the patent." Ultimax Cement Mfg. Corp. v. CTS Cement Mfg. Corp., 587 F.3d 1339, 1352 (Fed. Cir. 2009).
