A new approach to the classification of positional numeral systems Chapter in Scopus uri icon

Abstract

  • We propose a new classification of positional numeral systems with positive bases represented by either fixed numbers or by functions. The simplest functions used are the factorial and binomial ones. The proposed classification comprises all existing numeral systems with both uniform and non-uniform numbers, as well as possible new systems that could be developed in the future. © 2014 The authors and IOS Press.
