Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
Good point. I might move it to logic puzzles, but only after the OP explains what the hell this is about anyway. Absent that, I'm just going to lock it.
Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
I set a task that can not be solved with current knowledge of mathematics, the reason is simple math based on the current lot of axioms, these axioms are barriers to new discoveries in mathematics.
If you want to introduce you my view of mathematics. It consists of two axioms (natural, real) and space. As compiled by elements of the Euclid, I want to show that mathematics can solve all the problems that current mathematics can not be resolved

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
My Time Cube sense is tingling. Nonetheless, I'll have a stab at it.
Taking a, b, and c to mean the pattern of circle segments above them. Well my first throught was that the ? operator is simply "OR", but that doesn't really work for the bottom segment of c which is longer than it should be if the ? really is OR. As for representing those patterns with a single number, surely that can't be done? I could encode each one as a vector I suppose.

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
OK, so if I'm understanding you right, you've given us three unconventional values:and a binary operator on these values, represented by the question mark. You've then asked us to describe those three values, and define an operator which fits for the ?.
Given that information alone, I choose to describe those three values as being from a new number system which I'll describe here. From all the evidence provided so far, there is nothing to indicate that the number system contains any numbers other than these three provided... so the system contains only those three numbers. The binary operator I will define as follows:(The row with the stars is the one prescribed by the OP). As a bonus, I'll also define a second binary operator, which I'll call ¿, as follows:
Completely by coincidence, this set, with the operations ? and ¿, forms a field, which is kinda handy. Any resemblance to Z_{/3} is purely coincidental.

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
Exploring some of the assorted posts on other forums by this guy, I think he's got it into his head that by some witchcraft that comes from a single mathematical axiom he can represent all real numbers as fractions.
Given the attempts by others on other forums, I don't think theres any saving him.

So if you want to introduce us to your two axioms, do it. This is the math forum, not a puzzle forum. Frankly, I'm skeptical that reading your mind should count as a logic problem, but I'll leave that up to the mods to decide.

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
If you take black as 1 and white as 0, with the bottom right of the circle being the least significant bit, a = 1100110011 (819), b = 101111000011 (3011), and c = 1011110110111 (6071). c is obtained by rotating b counterclockwise 1 "bit", and ORing the result with a, so a ? b = a OR (2*b).

If you want to be comprehensible, you need to define any terms that are meant to carry a specific mathematical meaning (as opposed to the plain english language meanings). What is "natural along"? None of this reads like English, at all. I'm assuming English is not your first language, but even still, your other two posts were vastly more understandable than this one, so it's not just a matter of facility with English.

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
I like Sizic's solution, especially given how badly the question was asked. I didn't notice you had to rotate b a little bit before ORing it with a.
Theorem: kumarevo is cross because someone managed to glean some meaning out of his previous posts, and is determined to make no sense.

Where do these... inspired people come from? And how do they find this forum? <_<
What they (mathematicians) define as interesting depends on their particular field of study; mathematical anaylsts find pain and extreme confusion interesting, whereas geometers are interested in beauty.

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
Actually, if you take A and B to be subsets of the plane and "?" to be union, I'd buy that they give you "C".
Also, I'm a bit rusty, but what if I play Dollis Hill?

Let's have a fervent argument, mostly over semantics, where we all claim the burden of proof is on the other side!
Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
According to Sandheim's Theory of Nonstandard Openings (p. 203), that line allows Player 3 to equalize, so I'd recommend against it. You need to prepare Dollis Hill with a zwischenzug to Waterloo first.
Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
This is the best possible way that this thread could have developed. Bravo to you all.
Just so I can follow the gameplay, are we using Tudor Court Rules? I ask as otherwise I don't see why the zwischenzug is strictly necessary to prevent equalization (though of course helpful none the less).

Re: MATHEMATICS$1MREVISION
I'm pretty sure Tudor Court rules are standard on the fora.
My previous post may have been unclear  of course you don't need to play Waterloo to prevent equalization. However, I just ran it through the most recent version of Morningtomaton, and it told me you do if you want to use a Dollis Hill continuation. Current consensus is that there are other moves which prevent equalization, the most notable of which is Ustinov's novelty from Wimbledon vs. Rest of the World 1947, but they wouldn't allow MartianInvader to continue with Dollis Hill (unless he is trying to put himself at downonpoints, of course).
EDIT: Since gmalivuk's play was invalid anyway, I'm going to just go ahead and follow Ustinov.
