I've never seen that connotation before...

Could someone explain what "2->2" means? How do I read it? How do I evaluate it? Where is it used? etc.

That is a small one and just means 2^2 = 4.

The notation is called Conway chained arrow notation. It is used along with several other notations to represent huge numbers that even the standard power towers can not.

Hi;

10 ->10->100 is not the same as 10^10^100

No, because it doesn't have a value.

Hi;

Yes, it is not considered a number.

Grams of ham? How interesting! You guys should really goes easy with pork.

What is graham's number?

Hi;

Graham's number named after the guy with the same name is connected to a bit of combinatorics called Ramsey theory.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Even towers of those numbers do not compare with his number in post #40.

But, A((3->)^G->3,(3->)^G->3) certainly is.
