 Crazy power series in terms of base e andydude Long Time Fellow Posts: 509 Threads: 44 Joined: Aug 2007 04/23/2009, 06:12 AM The power series expansions of tetration ${}^{z}a$ about the base are commonly discussed about (a=1), which produce very nice coefficients. However, I remembered that the same power series about other points made each coefficient depend on tetration, which isn't so bad if we already know one base. I'm not sure if this is useful for noninteger heights, because there are z's in the bounds for summation. $ \begin{tabular}{rl} {}^{z}a & = {}^{z}e \\ & + \left[ \frac{1}{e} \sum_{k=1}^{z} \prod_{j=0}^{k} {}^{(z-j)}e \right] (a - e) \\ & + \left[ \frac{1}{e^2}\sum_{k=1}^{z} \left( e(k-1) - 1 + \sum_{j=0}^{k} \frac{1}{{}^{z-j}e} \sum_{i=1}^{z-j} \prod_{l=0}^{i} {}^{z-j-l}e \right) \prod_{j=0}^{k} {}^{z-j}e \right] (a - e)^2 \\ & + \cdots \end{tabular}$ Pretty crazy...

The base idea was independently mentioned by Ansus on the forum: http://math.eretrandre.org/tetrationforu...31#pid3131 For monomials we have a closed form for the (indefinite) sum. Also we know that the sum is linear. So we can compute the sum of polynomials and even powerseries. tommy1729 Ultimate Fellow Posts: 1,370 Threads: 335 Joined: Feb 2009 06/14/2009, 11:40 PM (06/14/2009, 04:49 PM)bo198214 Wrote: (06/13/2009, 05:46 AM)Gottfried Wrote: M.

Also we know that the sum is linear. So we can compute the sum of polynomials and even powerseries. however , the non-integer number of additions in the pdf is just a possible generalisation. so it might not be tetration afterall , or beter said , not neccessarily your " favorite " tetration. regards tommy1729 « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
