# Infinite degeneracy

Is something special for a quantum system with infinite degeneracy like free particle levels? $E=\frac{\hbar^2 \vec{k}.\vec{k}}{2m}$

Edit: I mean what is physical (or mathematical) significance of infinite degeneracy?

Knowing the degeneracy of energy levels is necessary in order to calculate many basic physical properties, such as the electronic ground state, absorption and emission spectra, etc. –  Douglas B. Staple Apr 18 '13 at 16:41
