Visualization of tridecal using exponents. You can just barely see the power towers, as they are only a few pixels wide at this scale.

Tridecal is equal to \(\lbrace10,10,10 \rbrace\), \(10\lbrace\lbrace1\rbrace\rbrace 2\) or \(10\lbrace10\rbrace10\) (10 dodecated to 10) in BEAF[1] or 3 & 10, using the array of operator. The term was coined by Jonathan Bowers.

Tridecal is the tenth Ackermann number.

The term "Infinity Scraper", defined by Jonathan Bowers, refers to any number larger than tridecal.

Sbiis Saibian gave this number another name, deka-endekaxis[2]

Aarex Tiaokhiao calls this number doclsol and is equal to s(10,10,1,2) = s(10,10,10) in strong array notation.[3]

Etymology

The name of this number is based on tri- (three) and decal- (ten), meaning that there are 3 10's in the array.

Approximations in other notations

Notation Approximation
Up-arrow notation \(10 \uparrow^{10} 10\) (exact value)
