Circle Notation

A notation for large numbers due to Steinhaus (1999). In circle notation, ncirc is defined as n in n squares, where numbers written inside squares (and triangles) are interpreted in terms of Steinhaus-Moser notation. The particular number known as the mega is then defined as follows (correcting the typographical error of Steinhaus).
