Ackermann function and hyper operations
#1
I wanted to say something about the first part, "1 Introduction". In this part of the paper, you equate the original Ackermann function with a[n]b, which (stictly speaking) is not true. Robert Munafo has discussed this on his website (http://www.mrob.com/pub/math/largenum.html), and I have also verified this for myself by reading the original paper Ackermann wrote. Ackermann's tetration is a function which is an offset from tetration. Because it is an offset of tetration, is not pentation at all. It wasn't until Reuben Goodstein that the "offset" disappeared. I think we should take this into account when discussing the original Ackermann function, because its evolution is way more complicated than any introduction can really summarize.
