FORMULA

Generalized nim sum m + n in base q: write m and n in base q and add mod q with no carries, e.g. 5 + 8 in base 3 = "21" + "22" = "10" = 1.


MATHEMATICA

carrylessAdd[m_, n_, b_] := Block[{lm = IntegerLength[m, b], ln = IntegerLength[n, b]}, mx = Max[lm, ln]; idm = IntegerDigits[m, b, mx]; idn = IntegerDigits[n, b, mx]; FromDigits[ Mod[ idm + idn, b], b]]; Table[ carrylessAdd[n, n, 10], {n, 0, 76}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 23 2010 *)
