# StructureEdit

**Alphabet** is a set consisting of two symbols so it is called binary alphabet:

**Word** c is a sequence of symbols ( string). It can be dsiplayed in two ways :^{[2]}

- a little-endian (least-significant-bit-first) :
- a big-endian :

When :

- is on the right side it is easier to treat it as a binary number
- is on the leftt side it is easier for machine

**Space of words** denote the set of all infinite strings over the alphabet.

The strings ( , 0, 1, 00, 01, 10, 11, 000, etc.) would all be in this space.

represents the empty string

## ActionEdit

Here is only one **transformation ( action )** a ona a input word c :

where :

- is a lsb,
^{[3]}first symbol ( here at the beginnig, but for binary notationit will be at the end of sequence) - is a rest of the word

Transformation is defined by 2 recursion formulae :

- if the first symbol is zero then we change it to one and the rest of the word remains unchanged
- if it is one :
- we change it to zero
- carry 1 to next column.
^{[4]} - aply action to the next column (symbol) until last column

Formally:

or in other notation :

"This transformation is known as the adding machine, or odometer, since it describes the process of adding one to a binary integer." ^{[5]}

More explicitly :^{[6]}

if and only if

Both **input and output** are binary numbers least-significant bit first.

### ExamplesEdit

Word c is a sequence of n symbols ( from 0 to n-1) representing binary integer :

where is an element of binary alphabet X ={0,1}

without carry because lsb :

0 + 1 --- 1

Here lsb then c_0+1>1 so one has to carry 1 to next column

1 + 1 --- 10

10 + 01 ----- 11

Carry in second column ( from right to left)

011 + 001 ----- 100

100 + 001 ----- 101

101 + 001 ----- 110

0111 + 0001 ----- 1000

## NucleusEdit

The nucleus of group G is :^{[7]}

where a is an action of group G

## TreeEdit

A point of the binary tree c = c0 c1 c2 . . .where corresponds to the diadic integer

which translates to the n-ary addition

# Visual representationEdit

## DiagramEdit

Here **alphabet** is a set consisting of two symbols so it is called binary alphabet:

**Labels** shows pairs of symbols : input/output

There are 2 **vertices** ( nodes, states of machine) : 1 and 0.

Vertices correspond to the states .

"The states of this machine will represent the value that is "carried" to the next bit position.

Initially 1 is "carried".

The carry is "propagated" as long as the input bits are 1.

When an input bit of 0 is encountered, the carry is "absorbed" and 1 is output.

After that point, the input is just replicated." ^{[8]}

## TableEdit

Table ^{[9]}

# GAP/FREdit

BinaryAddingGroup ( global variable )

This function constructs the state-closed group generated by the adding machine on [1,2]. This group is isomorphic to the Integers.

BinaryAddingMachine ( global variable )

This function constructs the adding machine on the alphabet [1,2]. This machine has a trivial state 1, and a non-trivial state 2. It implements the operation "add 1 with carry" on sequences.

BinaryAddingElement ( global variable )

This function constructs the Mealy element on the adding machine, with initial state 2.

These functions are respectively the same as AddingGroup(2), AddingMachine(2) and AddingElement(2).
