Infinite lists in Scheme: Streams
We can work with lists of infinite length by delaying the evaluation of every list tail using delay

As an invariant, every list tail will be delayed

(cons-stream a b)   ~   (cons a (delay b))

(define head car)

(define (tail stream) (force (cdr stream)))

(define empty-stream? null?)

(define the-empty-stream '())
An implementation of cons-stream in R5RS Scheme.
The functions mentioned above stem from the book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
