Re: The biggest number?Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #77 20130516 02:26:36
Re: The biggest number?OK then ; Graham's number Factorial (Couldn't use !, look like an exclamation.) #78 20130516 02:30:52
Re: The biggest number?I think you are trying to beat the current champ post #71. Which looks like an Ackermann function. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #79 20130516 03:06:27
Re: The biggest number?Ok then, Graham's number ^ graham's number Graham's number ^ graham's number times #80 20130516 03:08:53
Re: The biggest number?Nope, Ackermann's Function with Graham numbers is bigger than any tower power. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #82 20130516 07:45:11
Re: The biggest number?Nope, we could very unimaginatively say +1 as long as we like. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #83 20130516 08:23:13
Re: The biggest number?I know, but we can't really name anything now except for Graham's number (and that's been taken for a long time) #84 20130516 08:37:11
Re: The biggest number?A power tower is a bunch of exponents.As far as I. know the Ackermann function is the biggest. And that is only the third one. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #85 20130517 08:33:12

Re: The biggest number?Oooh, that is a teeny, tiny one. But maybe it will grow if we water it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #87 20130519 22:16:51
Re: The biggest number?
Yes,it will grow so big that it is bigger than the universe. Hey. #88 20130519 22:19:43
Re: The biggest number?Yes it is bigger than the universe but it is teeny, tiny and teensy next to the Ackermann Function. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #89 20130519 22:22:06
Re: The biggest number?sadly,the Ackermann Function ate my number!! Hey. #90 20130519 22:32:02

Re: The biggest number?I'll bite and hope I lose! Okay, first all my variables will be 999e999 or 999*10^999. Graham's number is actually a function so I think we should build them ourselves rather than relying on others to do it. Last edited by philandy (20130612 03:22:48)
