A Logical Alternative to the Existing Positional Number System

  title={A Logical Alternative to the Existing Positional Number System},
  author={Robert R. Forslund},
This article introduces an alternative positional number system. The advantages of this alternative system over the existing one are discussed, and an illustration of the use of the system to re-interpret apparent errors in ancient archaeological documents is presented. 

Number Theory and Formal Languages

I survey some of the connections between formal languages and number theory. Topics discussed include applications of representation in base k, representation by sums of Fibonacci numbers, automatic

The Generalized Nagell–Ljunggren Problem: Powers with Repetitive Representations

A natural generalization of the Nagell–Ljunggren equation to the case where the qth power of an integer y, for q ⩾ 2, has a base-b representation that consists of a length-ℓ block of digits repeated n times is considered.
