# Dozenal Applications

Dozens are powerful; but what good are they if they can't be applied to our many numerical needs? Fortunately, though, dozenalism offers great improvements in a vast array of applications in all fields of human endeavor. This page explores a number of such applications, from speaking about numbers to measurement systems, including one that's more than a replacement for the much-vaunted SI metric.

- Establishment
- The Dozenal
Establishment Act: A sample bill for establishing the
dozenal system as the official dozenal system of a country.
This was loosely designed for the United States, though it
would need some modification to be actually implemented;
*mutatis mutandis*it or something similar should be applicable in many places. Helps to answer the question, "Fine, but how will you actually do it?" - Counting and Number Words---Systematic Dozenal Nomenclature
- A Summary of SDN: A brief summary of the SDN system formatted to be printed on a standard American business card.
- A Brief Overview of SDN: Quickly reviews the esentials of SDN; namely, those parts which are necessary for simple counting. Provides a passing acquaintance with the system.
- SDN: A Basic Explanation: As the name implies, this article provides a basic explanation of the Systematic Dozenal Nomenclature system. Reviews those parts of SDN which most people will need and ignores those which most people will not.
- SDN: The Full System: As again the name implies, this article explains the SDN system in all its detail, including the parts which are rarely needed. A good article for digesting the immense power of this system.
- Examples of SDN: Gives some examples of SDN in action, showing how much more powerful than our current haphazard system it is while simultaneously being simpler and easier.
- The Sounds of SDN: Provides a clickable chart of normal digits, SDN roots, SDN multipliers, SDN positive powers, and SDN negative powers, to be played audibly by an HTML5-capable browser. A good way to get a feel for the way SDN sounds in different languages and accents.
- Dozenal Measurement---TGM
- TGM: An Overview: A brief overview of the TGM---Tim, Grafut, Maz---measurement system. Gives the basics, enough to get a feel for the system's most essential units and internal harmony.
- TGM: A Coherent Dozenal Metrology: A new, revised and expanded version of Tom Pendlebury's second edition booklet. Includes an entirely newly typeset version of the units appendix, with several errata corrected.
- Why TGM isn't Based on "Fundamental Constants": An explanation for Pendlebury's decision not to base TGM on fundamental physical constants.
- TGM Step-by-Step
- TGM Time: Explains TGM's definition of the Tim as based upon the mean solar day, and shows how convenient TGM's time units can be. Fundamental reality: the mean solar day.
- TGM Space: Explains TGM's spatial units---length, speed, acceleration, and the like. Fundamental reality: the acceleration of gravity.
- TGM Matter: Explains TGM's units for dealing with matter: mass, density, force, and pressure. Fundamental realities: the density of water, weight.
- TGM Energy: Explains TGM's units for work, energy, heat, and power. Scales for temperature. Fundamental realities: absolute zero, the specific heat of water.
- TGM Angles: Explains the TGM units for angles, rotation, radiation, and reciprocal units. Fundamental realities: pi and the radian.
- TGM Electromagnetism: Explains the TGM units for electricity and magnetism. Fundamental reality: the permeability of free space.
- Counting Particles: Discusses the TGM system of counting fundamental particles, an important concept for the science of chemistry. Fundamental reality: the mass of an atom of carbon-10.
- Music à la Dozen
- Music
à la Dozen: A complete rethinking of our
current system of musical notation, taking into account its
inherently dozenal nature. Substantially improves and
rationalizes the system. This is the remastered version of
the original articles by Tom Pendlebury, published in the
*Dozenal Journal*; this is not quite complete and is still rough in parts, but the quality is better than the scanned version. - Music
à la Dozen (Original): The original
article from
*The Dozenal Journal*, 1191, scanned in from the Journal. Complete, but suffers from lower quality than the remastered version. Scanned and distributed with the permission of the DSGB.
