A number base that's not a positive integer 2009-12-11
From Nick:
Is it possible for a number to have a base that's not a positive integer? Base 1 gives a result that's meaningless but possible. I have no concept of a base 0, a negative base, or a fractional base, never mind any other base. I think there isn't any base that's not a positive integer, but, knowing that math keeps jumping ahead and sometimes has inventions before anyone knows how to exploit them, I think I'd better ask.

Thank you.

Nick
