Ordinal calculator and research tool
Version 0.3.0 beta Released
This release extends the ordinal hierarchy by a nested form of ordinal
collapsing or projection using a generalization of recursive notations applied
to larger countable ordinals.
- Interactive tool to understand the recursive and larger
- Ordinal arithmetic calculator
- A research tool to investigate and expand the ordinal
- Supports the Veblen hierarchy and a form of ordinal collapsing
for large recursive ordinals
Microsoft Windows version is available as a standard installation
or a stand alone executable you can use without
installation. It runs on Windows versions staring with XP and on
the Wine emulator.
- The source code should build
on most Linux and many Unix systems and Windows XP and later with Visual C++.
- LaTeX output option
- Source code licensed for use and distribution under the GNU General Public
License version 2 and later
The GNU LGPL license version 3 also applies to the executables.
Download ordCalc_0.3.0 beta
This should build on most Linux and many Unix development systems and on
Microsoft Windows Visual C++.
The Linux build requires the MPIR and readline packages.
If these are not installed on your Linux system you may be able to install
them with the superuser
yum install mpir-devel readline-devel
The Microsoft Visual C++ build only requires the
MPIR libraries, but
you probably have to build the libraries.
The automated testing on Windows (but not the build)
This package includes full documentation in PDF format and
