    There's a chart here with basic explanations of different infinitive and gerund forms. Remember that perfect forms use 'have' for the most part :

    to have run (the race)
    to have taken part in the performance

    to + have + [verb form]

    This can also be passive: 'to have been chosen'

    Be sure to read through other sections, especially the one with the blue button below this.
