Visualization of boogasix using exponentiation

Boogasix is equal to \(6\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow6\), or six hexated to 6.[1]

Googology Wiki user Hyp cos call this number hexteto, and it's equal to s(6,6,4) = s(6,2,5) = s(6,4,1,2) in strong array notation.[2]

Boboris02 calls this number Hexar, which also equals \(Q_{1,0}(6)=Q_{6}(6)\) in the Q-supersystem.[3]

Etymology

The name "boogasix" is formed by applying the booga- prefix to 6.

The name "hexteto" is based on the word "hexa" and "tetra" (Greek for 6 and 4), meaning a base-6 number, generated using hyper-4 operation based on exponentiation.

The name "Hexar" comes from the greek word "hexa" meaning six and the suffix "-ar".

Computation

Boogasix can be computed in the following process:

  • \(f(1)=6\)
  • \(f(2)=6^{6^{6^{6^{6^6}}}}\) with f(1) 6's, a.k.a. megafugasix
  • \(f(3)=6^{6^{\vdots^{6^6}}}\) with f(2) 6's
  • \(f(4)=6^{6^{\vdots^{6^6}}}\) with f(3) 6's
  • etc.
  • Boogasix equals \(f(f(f(f(f(6)))))\).
