  •  May I suggest H^n? (0+ / 0-)


    Maybe the notation H2H2H....2H is very standard, but it's a little hard to read sometimes.  

    May I suggest H^2 to mean H2H, H^3 to mean H2H2H, etc.?  You could even write H^1 to mean B2H.  This way, the level of spread is very quickly understood by the reader.

    As you may have guessed, I'm a mathematician.  Sorry if this seems overly pedantic, it's just boring to read things like H2H2H2H and trying to figure out what which level we're on!

    Will you spend an hour on the ground for every 100 hours you spend fuming online?

      It's got to be universally understood notation. ;-)
