The arithmetic of trees

Adriano Bruno and Dan Yasaki

Vol. 4 (2011), No. 1, 1–11
Abstract

The arithmetic of the natural numbers can be extended to arithmetic operations on planar binary trees. This gives rise to a noncommutative arithmetic theory. In this exposition, we describe this arithmetree, first defined by Loday, and investigate prime trees.
