Perhaps. I am not convinced yet that it is true, but if it was, this would be great. We even know vice versa if we have two solutions and of the Abel equation then , meaning that is a 1-periodic function, so we know already that each other solution of the Abel equation must be of the form for some 1-periodic . To prove theorem 1 everything depends on the behaviour of those 1-periodic functions for . For uniqueness roughly the real value must be go to infinity for the imaginary argument going to infinity.

Yes, my negligence. The in has to be replaced by in the previous post.

Can you please compute values on the real axis for bases for example for ? I would like to compare your solution with the regular tetration developed at the lower real fixed point (which would be 2 in the case of ) of .

Bo, I got your message about base b=e^(1/e) and b=sqrt(2). In these cases, the real part of quasiperiod is zero, and I cannot run my algorithm as is. I need to adopt it. It will take time. I do not think that b=sqrt(2) is of specific interest (just integer L(b)=4); we need to consider the general case.

You may advance faster than I do. You may begin with the plot of the asymptotic period T(b) and analysis of its limiting behavior in vicinity of b=1 and b=e^(1/e). Please, provide the good approximation for (at least) the leading terms.

P.S. you may also correct misprints in your post:

invert the scaling factor for the argument of sin, and

delete the expression with unmatched parenthesis.
