My prefix you say in astonishment,

My infix within the prefix slightly smaller than a pie

My suffix is huge, or even enormous,

And here comes the end of the riddle.

Hint 1:

The tag 'mathematics' is there for a reason.

My prefix you say in astonishment,

OMeGa!

My infix within the prefix slightly smaller than a pie

omega, because 2.7 is less than 3.1

My suffix is huge, or even enormous,

omega

And here comes the end of the riddle.

OMG + e + mega = omega, which is the end of the Greek alphabet, and a constituent of the title (and username)!

I will give it another try.

Is it

opifice?

Prefix

"Oh" or "o" is the sound one makes when surprised/astonished.

Infix

Pi is "smaller" (shorter) than Pie.

Suffix

Fice is and old word synonym to feist. Feist = Gross, which is big in German. Also it is a synonym of obese.

  • $\begingroup$ Prefix and infix almost there, suffix wrong. Keep it up! $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Oct 31 '18 at 11:28

Is it

atrocity?

Prefix

Ah or a is the sound one makes when surprised/astonished.

Infix

Three is smaller than number Pi. Three sounds like "tree" which is close to "tro"

Suffix

Cities are bigger than villages or towns. Can be big/huge.
