A perpetuity is a constant stream of identical cash flows with no end.  The formula for determining the [[Present Value]] of a perpetuity is as follows:

$\Large PV$ $=$ $\LARGE \frac{C_1}{(1+r)^1} +  \frac{C_2}{(1+r)^2} +  \frac{C_3}{(1+r)^3} + ... = \frac {C}{r}$

In [[Principles of Corporate Finance]] the perpetuity is defined as an [[Annuity]] in which the periodic payments begin on a fixed date and continue indefinitely.
