I'm trying to parse the word γνωναι and Perseus, my Lexicon, and my Interlinear all say it's the aor act inf of γινσωκω.
Am I forming the aor act inf correctly:
"aorist active stem" + ειν (it's 2nd aorist active so that's why I'm using the ending ειν)
γνω + ειν (how does this become γνωναι)
I'm trying to parse the word γνωναι...

The text in question:
Mt 13:11 ὑμῖν δέδοται γνῶναι τὰ μυστήρια τῆς βασιλείας τῶν οὐρανῶν.
Method One: Τo you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven.
Method Two: third aorist active infinitive of γιγνώσκω. Non-dislocated in middle position to topicalize it as the theme of the sentence.
Lightman’s Method Three: ὁ Θεὸς μὲν οὖν δίδωσι ὑμῖν τὴν γνῶσιν τῆς βασιλείας.
Robie’s Method Four: τὸ ἀόριστον ἐνεργητικὸν ἀπαρέμφατον. τὸ ρῆμα ἐστιν ἀκίνητον ἐν μέσῳ τόπῳ διότι ἀξιόλογον ἐστιν.
Carlson’s Method Five: In his interlinear, Glenn crosses out the English words “to know” and writes in the Greek words τὴν γνῶσιν τοῦ.
