polynomial interpolation to fractional iteration
#1
Hi -

triggered by a discussion in sci.math I tried to explain to someone, how one could naively use interpolation to obtain a version of continuous tetration.
For simplicitiness I used U-tetration (x -> exp(x)-1)
In a second shot I made this a bit more general and - whoops - it comes out to be the matrix-method in disguise (but now with a bit more general approach). Nothing new to the experienced tetration-diggers here, but maybe still a nice exercise.

Happy christmas to all -

Gottfried

Very nice discussion! I like the colors of the coefficients. I also briefly discuss this in this thread, and Jay discusses this in this thread, just to let you know, if you forgot. Also why do you call it U-tetration? I call it iterated decremented exponentials, since:
  • iterated = repeating the same function over and over
  • decremented = subtracting one from something
  • exponential = a function from x to
so an expression like would be a decremented exponential, and an expression like would be an iterated decremented exponential.

Nice! Thanks

Yepp, thanks. Our forum is a rich resource - sometimes I just browse through older threads and understand today, what I didn't understand before... I'll have a look at it.

Yes, I know. But just count the number of letters... In informal exchange I tend to use the name of the matrices, which I use in Pari/Gp. And I don't know why, but U-tetration as some low-level association for me. If my other tetration-article is finished, I'll replace some of the nicks by the more expressive denotations.

Thanks again for your comment -

:-)

I was even involved in that thread ... For whatever reason I did not catch its contents then...

So it goes -
