## Quick ordinal notation

Well, I somehow came up with an ordinal notation based off my previous unsimplifcation of Rathjen's big Psi while eating breakfast. I'm going to type it up quickly so I don't forget. Might contain typos or misrememberings.

Symbols: Binary Ξ, ternary Ψ, multi-ary +, constants 0 and K

And from here we enter There Is Only One Rule. This will be in future "OCF"s based on one and only one unchangeable rule.

G(α,β) is an abbreviation of "largest ordinal α uses except below β"

(ordinal more like Ordinal() which is the structures we use in the ordinal notation)

(If more than one case is matched, the one listed first has higher priority.)

## Additive inaccessible OCF but unsus

Simultaneously define $$I_\alpha: \mathrm{Ord} \to \mathrm{Ord}$$ and $$C_\alpha \subset \mathrm{Ord}$$ for $$\alpha \in \mathrm{Ord}$$ via the following transfinite recursion:

1. $$C_\alpha = \{\kappa: \mathrm{cof}(\kappa) = \kappa \land \forall \beta \in \alpha (I_\beta(\kappa) = \kappa)\}$$.
2. $$I_\alpha(\beta) = \min\{\kappa: (\kappa \in C_\alpha \lor \kappa = \sup(C_\alpha \cap \kappa)) \land \forall \gamma \in \beta (I_\alpha(\gamma) \in \kappa)\}$$.

Define $$\mathrm{IS}: \mathrm{Ord}^2 \times \mathbb{N} \to \mathrm{Ord}$$ via the following transfinite recursion:

1. If $$\gamma = 0$$, $$\mathrm{IS}(\alpha, \beta, \gamma) = \alpha$$.

My reasoning is that it's very clearly ill-defined from a source which is neither reputable nor notable, and which was created as a response to deletion from sourcing from a blog post. I'll also propose something more radical; that we should possibly change our guidelines for deletion or sources, so stuff like this doesn't end up on the wiki.

## A new paradigm of ordinal notations

A "determinacy-style ordinal notation" is a new paradigm of ordinal notations. They're called that since I constructed one which I guess reaches $$\mathrm{PTO}(\textsf{ZF} + \textsf{AD})$$, believe it or not. However, with power comes complexity, so there's a lot of properties which need verifying for it to be a "proper" determinacy-style ON. In the following, I walk through the layout of a determinacy ordinal notation. If P進大好きbot sees this, I'll be very excited to see what they make!

• 2 Step 2

2. Finite sequences of natural numbers
3. Natural numbers

## A definition of my array notation

Here are the rules of TPAN (Trial Purple Array Notation)

All $$\psi$$s are Extended Buchholz in my blog posts, unless otherwise specified.

Warning: The following is informal and probably ill-defined.

An array is {a0s0a1s1...sk-1ak}, where the ai are either natural numbers, arrays, or sums of arrays. The si are separators, which are explained below.

A separator is [q;k], where q is a countable or uncountable ordinal, expressed in the array notation. If k is bigger than ω, write [q/k`;].

## Addition and Sequences: Rayo string for n(3)

In this blog post, I will write a Rayo string for n(3). I chose this because it seems that it would take the least symbols out of all the combinatorial functions.

I must have screwed up somewhere. Can someone please check my work?

• 1 Idea
• 2 Letters
• 4 Sequence
• 5 Subsequence
• 6 $$n(k)$$
• 7 Conclusion

Ordered pairs are hard to work with, and ordered n-tuples are just hell. Therefore, to represent the Friedman strings, we must not use ordered n-tuples. Instead, we do something like this:

$F=\{\{x_1,1\},\{x_2,2\},\{x_3,3\},\dots\}$

To ensure there is no confusion, we must make the letters of the alphabet correspond to non-ordinals. The simplest choice is just to let $$A=\{1\}$$, $$B=\{A\}$$, and $$C=\{B\}$$.

Once we define the constants, we can just ref…

## Attempt 2 at an additive inaccessible OCF

Due to the glaring flaws in my original attempt, I have made a new post. It seems to work similarly to multivariable Buchholz psi, diagonalizing on the subscript of Buchholz psi, with $$\psi_I$$ not enumerating fixed points of $$\Omega_\alpha$$ but rather additive principals but I'm not entirely sure.

Define $$\Omega_\alpha$$ as follows:

• $$\Omega_0=1$$
• $$\Omega_{\alpha+1}=\text{next uncountable regular after }\Omega_\alpha$$
• $$\Omega_{\alpha}=\lim\{\Omega_\beta|\beta CompactStar 10 days ago 0 ## Extensible Illion System and my old -illions have been replaced https://integralview.wordpress.com/2022/05/15/zillion-notation Ubersketch 10 days ago 1 ## Ubersketch attempts to make an additive inaccessible OCF Since there aren't many additive inaccessible OCFs, I will attempt to make one.

Since then, not much has happened. I searched for "Rayo" in blog posts and couldn't find any better bounds. Also, if i remember correctly, the smallest n for which it's known that Rayo(n) > 2 was 59 until now. Although the improvements i found this week are small and kinda trivial, i think they are worth posting after such inactivity in this area. Of course, Rayo's function is model-dependent, so i should say that in this blog post, i'm working in some "ideal" model, which is undefined but we mostly agree on these basic properties of it (modeling ZF, or even KP, should be enough for these improvements to work).

## Low-level Rayo bounds

Last year, there was a lot of research on how to represent 65536 in the Rayo function, and Psi also calculated with proof some lower values of the function. However, I have noticed that there is no research on how to represent the smaller numbers. So here I will try to provide Rayo strings for arbitrary $$n$$. Feedback is encouraged!

By von Neumann's definition, $$S(n)=n\cup\{n\}$$. Which means that the predicate $$\text{IsSn}(x)$$ should say something like $n\in x\wedge n\subset x\wedge\neg\exists y(y\in x\wedge y\ne n\wedge y\notin n)$ Therefore, the corresponding Rayo string is \[\exists n((\text{Is}n(n)\wedge((n\in x\wedge (\neg\exists y((y\in n\wedge(\neg y\in x)))))\wedge\neg\exists y((y\in x\wedge((\neg y=n)\wedge(\neg y\in n))))))…

## Explanation of Buchholz's psi for beginners

Ordinal collapsing functions and their associated ordinal notations are important and elementary concepts in googology. Despite this, most explanations of OCFs are confusing and not so illuminating. To rectify this, I have written this blog post on Buchholz's psi, which is the most commonly used OCF in googology. This post will assume prior basic knowledge on ordinals in googology up to $$\varepsilon_0$$.

Let us introduce a function $$\psi_0$$. $$\psi_0(\alpha)$$, then, constructs a set $$C_0(\alpha)$$ of all ordinals constructible from finite additions, and finite applications of $$\psi_0$$ on 0, as long as the input of $$\psi_0$$ remains lesser than $$alpha$$ itself, and outputs the smallest ordinal larger than anything in $$C_0(\alpha)$$…

## On club sets and normal functions

In googology, there are two notions, club sets, and normal functions which seem disparate but are actually deeply related in a way that I will go over in a moment.

A club set $$S$$ of an ordinal $$\alpha$$ is a subset of $$\alpha$$ (using the von Neumann definition of an ordinal) such that...

• For every ordinal $$\beta$$ lesser than $$\alpha$$, there exists a $$\gamma$$ in $$S$$ such that $$\gamma$$ is greater than or equal to $$\beta$$.
• If the least ordinal $$\beta$$ greater than anything in some subset $$T$$ of $$S$$ is lesser than $$\alpha$$, then $$\beta$$ is in $$S$$.

You might be familiar with club sets from the definition of a weakly Mahlo cardinal.

A function normal in $$\alpha$$, $$f$$ is a function $$f:\alpha\rightarrow\alpha$$ such t…

• Rule 2. If the x value is 0, the result is 0.
• Rule 3. If the x value is x*10n, x/10n is the value of x/10n+y.

1100 is googol.

## Nerfing block duration of the 3-out rule

Update: 5/7/2022: Fixed some mistakes

I found out that under the section "Googology Wiki:Policy#How to warn users", In that case, the admin will check the correctness of the sources in the format. If the sources of three or more of them actually show distinct violations, then the admin will block the user at least three months for the first time, and at least 99 years for the second time. At one part in that paragraph in the policy shows that the term "99 years" is nonstandard block duration and can confuse with "indefinite blocks", hence I will nerf that rule further under his blog post minorly. In addition, the 3-out rule occurs very infrequently.

## A neat little recursion on FGH

In the following, a "function" is a map of type $$\mathbb{N} \to \mathbb{N}$$, and we use $$\mathfrak{F}$$ to denote the set of functions.

We define a map $$\begin{array}{ccc} f: \mathbb{N}^3 \times \mathfrak{F} & \to & \mathbb{N} \\ (s,m,n,x) & \mapsto & f_s^m(x,n) \end{array}$$ like so:

1. If $$m = 0$$, $$f_s^m(x,n) = n$$.
2. If $$m = 1$$:
1. If $$s = 0$$, $$f_s^m(x,n) = x(n)$$.
2. Else, $$f_s^m(x,n) = f_{s-1}^n(x,n)$$.
3. Else, $$f_s^m(x,n) = f_s^1(x,f_s^{m-1}(x,n))$$.

We define a map $$\begin{array}{ccc} g: \mathbb{N}^2 & \to & \mathfrak{F} \\ (n,l) & \mapsto & h_l(n) \end{array}$$ like so:

1. If $$l = 1$$, $$h_l(n)$$ is the map $$k \mapsto k+1$$.

this should go to 2 entry veblen if I'm not wrong, which... is really weak for an OCF. This was just made as a joke, so yeah, I probably did everything wrong, but it was fun to make

## The jumping ball function

• 1 Introduction
• 2 How does the JBF works?
• 2.1 Why the 1st frame doesnt generates new balls?
• 2.2 How i could get the amount of balls per second?

The jumping ball function, aka TJBF for short, is a function made by Idontknow350. Its concept is very simple, yet it can create bestial numbers. Heres the explanation:

See the infobox GIF. It shows a ball jumping (Thats why the name exists lol). Imagine that in every frame excluding the 1st one the same GIF duplicates and adds another video that does the same: Add more videos. Everytime, more and more jumping balls are coming, and if you ask, the GIF is looped, so the frames never ends.

Because it could generate infinite balls in less than a plank time, and we dont want a overloading that fast.

The formula is…

## Announcement

I'm going to learn how to do ordinal analysis :)

After that, I'm probably going to completely overestimate my intelligence and try to analyse something stronger than $$\textbf{KP} + \Pi_1 \textrm{-coll}$$, give up and cry, then come back, do it and get a Nobel peace price.

(OK, that last part was a joke but the first part was true.)

An expression in NLPrSS are sequences defined recursively as $$()$$,$$\Omega_n$$ for an arbitrary natural number $$n$$, or a sequence thereof.

$$\&$$ denotes concatenation, $$\#_n$$ denotes a sequence variable where $$n$$ is an arbitrary natural number ($$n$$ may be omitted if there is only one).

Let $$S$$ be an NLPrSS expression. Define recursively a function $$\mathrm{cof}$$ taking an NLPrSS expression and giving an NLPrSS expression as follows:

• Suppose $$S=()$$
• $$\mathrm{cof}(S)=()$$
• Suppose $$S=\#\&()$$
• $$\mathrm{cof}(S)=(())$$
• Suppose $$S=\#_0\&(\#_1\&())$$
• $$\mathrm{cof}(S)=((),(()))$$

W.I.P.

## What if numbers had loops?

In this alternate universe numbers have loops that are infinitely bigger. Also here infinity does not exist.

So it's Big One, Big Two, Big Three...Big Oblivion, Big Utter Oblivion and Big Sam's Number.

And the numbers are written like L1(1), L1(2), L1(3)...L1(Oblivion), L1(Utter Oblivion) and L1(Sam's Number).

So it's Huge One, Huge Two, Huge Three... and so on.

And like Loop 1, the numbers are written like L2(1), L2(2), L2(3)... and so on.

And theres Loop 3 which starts with "Giant", Loop 4 which starts with "Mega" and Loop 5 which starts with "Grand".

Then theres Loop 6 which starts with "Grand Big", Loop 7 which starts with "Gra…

An expression in ExLPrSS is composed of a finite hereditary sequence, that is, a sequence which can be empty, or a sequence of other finite hereditary sequences.

Let $$S$$ denote an expression in ExLPrSS, $$\&$$ denote concatenation, $$T$$ denote the last entry of $$S$$, $$b$$ denote the rightmost entry of $$S$$ which is lesser than the last entry of $$S$$, $$\#$$ denote an arbitrary sequence, $$Z^n$$ denote a sequence of $$n$$ $$()$$s where $$n$$ is an arbitrary non-zero natural, $$B$$ denote the subsequence of $$S$$ which is composed of $$b$$ and everything to the right of $$b$$ except for the last entry, $$G$$ denote the subsequence of $$B$$ which is the complement of $$B$$ with the last column removed, and $$+^n$$ denote $$n$$ concaten…

## Definition of C sequence

The form of C sequence is as follows: C(a1, a2, a3,... an), where 'a1' is the first item, 'an' is the last item, each item is separated by commasand, and the values of all items are positive integers.

Parent: To an item, the item nearest before it and less than it is its parent. The first item has no parent,  other items may also have no parent.

(If a C sequence is considered as the order-difference-sequence of another C sequence, the parent of the item in the order-difference-sequence cannot be more right than the parent of the original sequence. Therefore, the parent of an item in the order-difference-sequence must meet three points: 1. It is smaller than the item, 2. It cannot be more right than the parent of the item in the original sequ…

## Ordinal Notation associated to the Successor OCF based on Weakly Compact Cardinals

Cute cake OCF! Time for an ON. Note that all the following definitions are simultaneous. $$\newcommand{\cake}{\textrm{🍰}} \newcommand{\altcake}{\textrm{🎂}} \newcommand{\othercake}{\textrm{🥮}} \newcommand{\pancakes}{\textrm{🥞}}$$

• 1 Notation
• 2 Check functions
• 3 Comparison
• 4 Standardness

Let $$\mathcal{L}_\cake$$ denote a formal alphabet consisting of the symbols $$0$$, $$\cake$$, $$\altcake$$, $$\othercake$$, $$\pancakes$$, parentheses and comma. We define sets $$RT_\cake \subset LT_\cake \subset T_\cake$$ of formal strings over $$\mathcal{L}_\cake$$ in the following recursive way:

1. $$0 \in T_\cake$$.
2. $$\cake \in T_\cake \cap LT_\cake \cap RT_\cake$$.
3. For $$s \in T_\cake$$, $$\pancakes(s) \in T_\cake$$.
4. For $$s \in T_\cake$$, \(\othercake(s) \in T_\cake \…
