Question about infinite tetrate
#2
tommy1729 Wrote:what is the area of that region?

That's not a stupid question, its actually a good question, and I don't know the answer. But let's see if we can answer that using what is known about this region. Galidakis (1) and I (2) both call it the Shell-Thron region since these two authors have both investigated this region in great detail. Shell and Thron note that converges where and (a result which they both attribute to Barrow). So if we want the outer path, then we change the less-than sign to an equals sign, and this should give us the answer. If , then we can parameterize this as where . This means that , and putting this back in the relationship with b gives the parameterization
where .

There are some interesting points that can be expressed with this function
Cool =
& 0.8152027425068848021
& + i\ 2.0166402199122300356 \\
f(2.316910654383280043Cool =
& -0.380979728647791984
& + i\ 0.8997001955459000918 \\
f(\pi) = & 0.0659880358453125371 & = e^{-e}
\end{tabular}

While we could use these points to integrate each section of the region, we could also use the parametric integration formula
where and . Using numerical integration we find that
which is only the top half of the region, and since A = 4.02546664046975481171259768713, then
2A = 8.05093328093950962342519537425 should be the area of the whole region.
