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
