U-tetration or "decremented exponential iteration"
Yes, there are other posts about this, because it is common to slip on this aspect. I think Henryk said it best in this post particularly. I think I have seen something similar in tetration itself as opposed to iter-dec-exp, but I'm not sure how to phrase it.

I first saw it when I was following Galidakis' research with his Puiseux series expansions about log(b). Galidakis uses series about the base b, whereas natural iteration uses series expansions about the iterator t in . With the linear approximation to tetration, as well as higher approximations, the table that Galidakis gives for the Puiseux series expansions of will give a discontinuity when the number of times you are differentiating is equal to t. In other words, the function:
is continuous and differentiable for all . This can only be seen if you already have a continuous extension of tetration to non-integer heights, if not, then its just a bunch of points. This has been bothering me for quite some time now, but I think it may be related to the iterability of . Since tetration and are topologically conjugate, this may help explain this as well...
