ABSTRACT
Discusses how a mathematical course taught by logician Professor L.C. Tortoise helped Professor S.L. Achilles develop a theory to improve the notation for 2 + 2. What the ordinary theory of formal languages teaches us about 2 and +; Description of what Achilles learnt during Tortoise's course.

    Abstract. In this paper we introduce a recursive notation system O(mu) of ordinals. An element of the notation system is called an ordinal diagram following G. Takeuti [25]. The system is designed for proof theoretic study of theories of recursively Mahlo universes. We show that for each alpha <...
