It is not standard calculus, geometry or even dynamics or tetration. Basically it is subdivided in 2 main categories that are examplified by the following below : consider 3 analytic functions f(z),g(z),h(z) and 9 distinct real numbers a1,a2,a3,.. such that : f ' (z) = f(a1 z) + g(a2 z) + h(a3 z) g ' (z) = f(a4 z) + g(a5 z) + h(a6 z) h ' (z) = f(a7 z) + g(a8 z) + h(a9 z) We have already considered the binary partition function before and its analytic asymptotic function F that satisfies F ' (z) = F(z/2). *** second example : consider the sequence t(n) = 4*T(n-1) + 1 where T(n) is the n'th triangular number. I like to define the sequence t(n) as above but it can also be defined as the centered square numbers. (in elementary number theory) A centered square number is a centered figurate number that gives the number of dots in a square with a dot in the center and all other dots surrounding the center dot in successive square layers. Or equivalently t(n) = n^2 + (n-1)^2. The first few centered square numbers are: 1, 5, 13, 25, 41, 61, 85, 113, 145, 181, 221, 265, 313 Now consider the entire function f(z) defined by the taylor series : f(z) = z + (z/5)^5 + (z/13)^13 + (z/25)^25 + (z/41)^41 + (z/61)^61 + ... This functions has a special growth rate and a nice distribution of zero's. Can you predict its growth rate or position of zero's before plotting or doing a lot of calculus ?? f(z) = sum (z/t(n)) ^ t(n). I like to call this function f(z) names like Eisenstein-tommy function. The closest to standard math is probably ' lacunary taylor series ' , ' lacunary polynomials ' , ' sparse polynomials ' and truncated taylor series. And its connections to fake function theory might exist ... *** Although many tools probably exist to study these things , you do not see them during education or in books usually. Correct me If I am wrong here, since I do not speak for all education and books around the world ofcourse. I considered that these ideas and their variants have number-theoretic intepretations. And ofcourse dynamics. The 2 parts may be related. And maybe gottfriends pxp function ideas are related as well. *** I wonder what you guys think about it. regards tommy1729   RE: " x-theory " - tommy1729 - 08/12/2021 The first problem seems very matrix like ... regards tommy1729
