What Do You Know About The Successor Function?

In the science of structure, order, and relation otherwise known as mathematics, the successor function is a primitive recursive function S in a way that S(n) = n+1 for n, each natural number. The successor function is also known as the successor operation and in the context of a zeroth hyperoperation, it is called zeration.
