Vigintation refers to the 20th hyperoperation starting from addition. It is equal to the binary function \(\uparrow^{18}\), using Knuth's up-arrow notation.[1]

"a vigintated to b" can be written in array notation as \(\{a,b,18\}\), in chained arrow notation as \(a \rightarrow b \rightarrow 18\) and in Hyper-E notation as E[a]1#1#1#1...1#1#1#b (17 ones).

Vigintational growth rate is approximately equivalent to \(f_{19}(n)\) in the fast-growing hierarchy.
