The first line is what you want to show. You show from the first line something true, but you can also show something true starting from something wrong; so thats not sufficient. Also it seems as if you confuse limit equality with sequence equality. Lets have a look at the inverse function $g=f^{-1}$, $g(x)=\lim_{k\to\infty} \frac{\exp_b^{\circ k}(x)-{^k b}}{{^k b}-({^{k-1} b})}$ it should satisfy $g(b^x)=g(x)+1$. Then lets compute $g(b^x)-g(x)= \lim_{k\to\infty}\frac{\exp_b^{\circ k+1}(x)-{^k b}}{{^k b}-({^{k-1} b})} - \frac{\exp_b^{\circ k}(x)-{^k b}}{{^k b}-({^{k-1} b})} =\lim_{k\to\infty} \frac{\exp_b^{\circ k+1}(x) - \exp_b^{\circ k}(x)}{{^k b}-({^{k-1} b})}$ Take for example $x=1$ then the right side converges to the derivative of $b^x$ at the fixed point; and not to 1 as it should be. This is the reason why the formula is only valid for functions that have derivative 1 at the fixed point, e.g. $e^{x/e}$, i.e. $b=e^{1/e}$. Quote:This is really weird because if i do $\lim_{k\to \infty} (log_{b}^{ok}(1({}^k b- {}^{(k-1)} b)+{}^k b) )$ for $b= sqrt2$ i get about 1.558 which is substantially larger then $sqrt2$ Can anyone else confirm that $\lim_{k\to \infty} (log_{b}^{ok}(1({}^k b- {}^{(k-1)} b)+{}^k b) ) \approx 1.558$ for $b= sqrt2$ ? Try the same with $b=e^{1/e}$ and it will work; but for no other base; except you use the modified formula I described before. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
