New Number Class: Diagonal Numbers
Price: Free! Words: 2,930. Language: English. Published: December 6, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Mathematics
We show sq. root of 2 cannot be perfectly squared to an integer. Propose a new class of numbers: Diagonal Numbers in contrast to orthogonal numbers (usual numbers.) Diagonal Numbers allow the root of 2, 3, etc to square to perfect integers without remainder. We uphold finitism in math and propose forming new rules for Diagonal Numbers. Review objections to infinite series and number continuums.
