Hello,

I’ve been trying to assess the progress made lately in extending tetration. I am happy with the state of my own work on the subject, but worry that it is a happiness born of ignorance, since no one has critiqued my work. I haven’t been in a position to write my own work up on tetration and the Ackermann function over the last few years, but that has now changed. With so many excellent minds working on the subject, it has been somewhat of a mystery to me as to why someone hasn’t already published a paper extending tetration to everyone’s satisfaction. That is why I am interested in the idea presented on this forum that the blockage in extending tetration comes down to establishing the uniqueness of the solution. Is this really the only issue to proving the extension of tetration?
