Cutler's Bar Notation - Advantages and Drawbacks

Advantages and Drawbacks

The Cutler Bar Notation can be used to easily express other notation systems in exponent form. It also allows for a flexible summarisation of multiple copies of the same exponents, where any number of stacked exponents can be shfted counter-clockwise and shortened to a single variable. The Bar Notation also allows for farily rapid composure of very large numbers. For instance, the number would contain more than a googolplex digits, whilst remaining fairly simple to write with and remember.

However, the system reaches a problem when dealing with different exponents in a single expression. For instance, the expression could not be summarised in Bar notation. Additionally, the exponent can only be shifted thrice before it returns to its original position, making a five degree shift indistinguishable from a one degree shift. Some have suggested using a double and triple bar in subsequent rotations, though this presents problems when dealing with ten and twenty degree shifts.

    There are great advantages to seeing yourself as an accident created by amateur parents as they practiced. You then have been left in an imperfect state and the rest is up to you. Only the most pitifully inept child requires perfection from parents.
