Re: Numbers, for those who are curious [Re: Ravus]

I would mention Graham's number, the largest number ever used in an equation, but I don't understand it to be honest. It takes a few paragraphs to even explain it's so big

3^3 is what it usually means in computer science: 33=27.

3^^3, though, is 3^(3^3)=333=327. Already a biggish number: 7,625,597,484,987.

3^^^3 is 3^^(3^^3) which is 3^^7,625,597,484,987 which is 3^(7,625,597,484,987^7,625,597,484,987). And that's already more than most people want to think about.

3^^^^3=3^^^(3^^^3), and so on. From here on, I'll use my own augmentation to the notation: 3^43 will mean 3^^^^3. The subscript indicates how many ^s there are.

Now. Start with G1=3^3^^^^33. I'll wait for your brain to stop sizzling. That's 3^^^^3 ^'s between the 3's. And you know what that can do to a number.

From there, consider G2=3^G13. Yes, that's G1 ^s. Owwwww.

Continue on in this fashion, with each number specifying the number of ^s in the next one, until you get to G63. It's no longer meaningful to say it's incredibly big, it's just too incredibly big. That is Graham's number: G63.

That's a pretty neat link.

"Two-colour the diagonals of an N-dimensional hypercube. What is the smallest N such that there must exist a K4 of one colour whose vertices are coplanar?"

And Graham found the upper limit of it, which was G63. Kick ass!!!
