# A Logical Alternative to the Existing Positional Number System

@inproceedings{Forslund1995ALA, title={A Logical Alternative to the Existing Positional Number System}, author={Robert R. Forslund}, year={1995} }

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.
