• ## Idea for a function (Hyperprime counting functions)

July 23, 2017 by Pellucidar12

Just another random mathematical speculation I came up with. It's probably not all that strong in terms of growth rate, but I thought it was interesting.

Define a 'hyperprime' number as a prime number whose digits, when added together, sum to a prime number, and the digits of that number added together also sum to a prime number, etc. until it reaches a 1 - digit prime.

The basic Hyperprime counting function HP(x) = the xth hyperprime number after 1.

The recursive Hyperprime counting functon RHP(x) = HP(HP(HP(HP...(x)))...) iterated a number of times equal to the value of x. I could probably come up with more extentions but I'm tired.

• ## Attempt at a FGH related notation

April 15, 2017 by Pellucidar12

This is written as a series of numbers in parentheses separated by commas, for example (x, y, z).

The first number on the left (x) represents the input of a FGH function.

The second number (y) represents the yth function after a limit ordinal

The third number (z) represents the zth limit ordinal (in this case, if z is 0 it is treating 0 as a limit ordinal, even though it's really not one)

So (0, 1, 1) = F1(1)

(1, 1, 1) = fw+1(1)

(2, 2, 2) = fw2+2(2)

You can extend this with a fourth number, making (x, y, z, a), where a equals the ath fixed point after ω, meaning z is the zth limit ordinal after the fixed point defined by a, etc.

For a further extension, you can have (x, y, z, a, b), where b is the bth admissible ordinal after ω (if b is 0 you just…

• ## Large number idea (inspired by Oblivion)

April 8, 2017 by Pellucidar12

So I was thinking about Jonathan Bowers' Oblivion series numbers, and I came up with a similar idea. It's almost certainly just as undefined as they are, but I just wanted to post the idea and see if it was even theoretically workable.

First you start with the Church-Kleene Ordinal. Then, using the function of said Ordinal in the Fast-Growing Hierarchy, you define the number f(CK)(10^100^100) (Function Googolplex of the Church-Kleene function). Call this number CK0. Then you define the simplest (meaning using the fewest different symbols) system of mathematics that has a proof-theoretic ordinal equal to the Church-Kleene Ordinal. Call this system SCK0.

Next you take the largest finite number that can be defined in SCK0 using no more than CK0…

• ## Is this a workable idea?

March 2, 2017 by Pellucidar12

I know it's very vague, but as I'm only a novice Googologist, I just wanted to know if the general idea is plausible.

Step 1: Create a fast-growing function that outputs not finite numbers, but ordinals

Step 2: Use this function to define a very large ordinal

Step 3: Create a fast-growing function using the fundamental sequence of that ordinal

Step 4: Use this new function to define a very large finite number
