Andrew Robbins' Tetration Extension

I am not sure what you mean by false singularity and false function, and how you would introduce a singularity somewhere. Despite I am very interested in the results you will come up with.
Sorry, it's how I picture it in my head and hence how I describe it. If you substituted the terms for the power series of 1/(z-3) for k>n, then you will have introduced a singularity to the solution. The system you solve would NOT just consist of the n terms you calculated, but an infinite number of terms, the first n of which are determined by the solution to the system, the remaining for k>n being given as an initial condition. Therefore, it would have a singularity at z=3, a simple pole in fact. This is a "false singularity", because it was introduced artificially, i.e., it was not predicted by the convergence of the finite systems. In fact, I would predict that convergence would nonetheless be to a series with singularities at the upper and lower fixed points (for base e).

Quote:I also would suggest to stop calling one solution as being "correct" (as it doesnt fit the meaning of the word), I rather would suggest to call the solution gotten by Andrew's method as being "natural".
I call it correct in the sense that the system should converge on the same solution, regardless of whatever initial conditions we specify for k>n, so long as those initial conditions do not attempt to reduce the radius of convergence below that of the system solved with 0's for k>n. But we can call it "natural" as well.
