Leftist Numbers
Rich, Andrew
College Mathematics Journal, v39 n5 p330-336 Nov 2008
The leftist number system consists of numbers with decimal digits arranged in strings to the left, instead of to the right. This system fails to be a field only because it contains zerodivisors. The same construction with prime base yields the p-adic numbers.
