Journal of Xenomathematics

What is Xenomathematics?

A venerable question about mathematics is whether it is invented or discovered. The discipline of Xenomathematics can be viewed as a variation on that theme.

Xenomathematics is the consideration of mathematical systems that might develop among other intelligent beings. This site is a forum for such discussions.

Submissions are welcome. They can be whimsical or serious, proposing possible alternative mathematical systems, or arguing that some basic mathematical concepts will be universal.

Send submissions to John E. McCarthy.
