I am always puzzled with the properties of 0 and 1. Is there a comprehensive list of properties of these numbers?

True, Zero is even number but its neither positive nor negative. But I do have a doubt as zero comes under natural numbers, those are non-negative integers. So, I think we can treat this as positive.

Natural numbers starts from 1 not 0

whole numbers starts from 0

Natural numbers are subset of whole number.

Whole numbers := [0,natural numbers]

may be wiki is wrong on this..

I got another link regarding this, http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/57186.html
