https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_A._D._W._Anderson Looked up the author. I’m laughing because he didn’t like that IEEE floating-point arithmetic beat him to it. But – I don’t think even IEEE was the first. Forming the number system into a loop _must_ have been around prior as it simply makes sense. Why should math break?
