What numbers come after millions, billions, and trillions... and how
The highest number listed on Robert Munafo's table, which coincidentally is my new favorite number, is a milli-millillion. Say that three times fast! That's 10 to the 3000003rd. For something closer to home, a centillion is 10 to the 303rd.
The googolplex has often been nominated as the largest named number in the world. If a googol is ten to the one hundredth, then a googolplex is one followed by a googol of zeroes. Ugh, we think we feel a headache coming on.
The aforementioned mathematician and large number fan Robert Munafo offers a table of megadigits on his personal page. You'll also find some biggies at Russ Rowlett's page at the University of North Carolina.
