Bashicu matrix

Bashicu matrix system is a notation designed to produce large numbers. Bashicu matrix is a matrix such as where all elements are nonnegative integers. The matrix can be written in the form of ; sequence of transpose of each column. With an algorithm invented by Bashicu in 2014 and updated as shown below in version history, Bashich matrix BM works as a function from a natural number n to a natural number BM[n] (provided that the calculation ends), and written as (0,0)(1,1)(1,1)[3]. It is known that 2-row matrix, pair sequence, can be approximated with Hardy function. When the function is approximated with Hardy function, the matrix itself represents the ordinal of the Hardy function, and therefore can be written as:

Official definition of the algorithm of Bashicu matrix is in the source code of C program of this site, Bashicu matrix calculator. Human readable definition and analysis of Bashicu matrix system is available at the entry at googology wiki.
