Quote:The proof relies on bases greater than eta, but if one starts with one of the bases greater than eta (e seems the obvious choice), and uses iterated logarithms for the other base (see Andrew Robbins's notation), then one can even get solutions for bases between 1 and eta, though I'm not sure if there is a defensible "unique" definition of the zeroeth iterate. (more on that when I get to bases less than eta).That would be the interesting case, we want to transfrom from a base to a base . For soundness it should also be verified that if (for this case we have a unique solution demanding differentiability at the smaller fixed point of ) the change of base yields the other unique solution for base .
