ab: From the text: This article shows how the present notation for arithmetic
operations can be extended to the unfamiliar operation of tetration.
Perhaps readers could devise their own ‘experimental’ systems for
extending operations ‒ paying due regard to bracketing order and
interpretation of operator sign as ‘active’ or ‘passive’.
