There is an interval that plays the same role in pentation as plays in tetration. I talked about the upper bound of this interval here, but whether or not there is a lower bound to this interval is unknown. Yes, without an extension to real/complex heights for for tetration, determining the lower bound (if any) does not seem possible. pentation? (Based on "polynomial" tetration)  Gottfried  03/29/2011 [update:] after I've written the following I got aware, that this should be better threaded under something like "polynomial tetration/pentation" since the basic powerseries for the tetration as I used it here was derived from the "polynomial tetration" using the diagonalization of the truncated real (square) Bellmatrix and its diagonalization  *not* of the triangular Bellmatrix of the regular tetration While usually I handle the tetration having a series which has the heightparameter in the exponents of its single terms, I played a bit around with a powerseriesrepresentation, and especially a powerseriesepansion for b^^h for b=4 and beginning at x=0 (instead of x=1 as usual). So that powerseries gives b^^0 = 0, b^^1=1,b^^2=4 and so on. Obviously that powerseries has no constant term. It begins like PHP Code: b^^h= 0.938409102074*h  0.167927302891*h^2 + 0.287554406742*h^3  0.151567019585*h^4 +... Having a powerseries without constant term cries for iteration, so this allows to implement pentation to base 4 as an iteration of the current powerseries. Moreover, I have then a twoparametric formula (as usually in x and h in exp_b°h(x) if base b is fixed). If I set x=1 and p="pentationheight"=1 I get the tetration beginning at 0 with height 1 (which gives 1) and this "iterated 1 time". If I iterate this 2 times, I get the following powerseries PHP Code: ((b^^h)^^^2 = exp_4°h(0))^^^2 = 0.880611642856*h  0.305463247599*h^2 + 0.560396635817*h^3  0.482701855960*h^4 +... Hmm. Again, if I tetrate 0 to the height 1/2 I get PHP Code: b^^0.5 = 0.457214343478 If I "do it two times" (???), p=2 I arrive at PHP Code: (b^^0.5)^^^2 = 0.417108029167 PHP Code: (b^^0.5)^^^0.5 = 0.478298158357 Does someone have a pentationimplementation which could provide comparable/concurring values? Well, you may see: I'm not even feeling that I understood what that computation (and the change of that parameters) tells me conceptually at all... Gottfried RE: pentation?

You're iterating b^^(x1) instead of b^^x.
