the inverse ackerman functions
#1
Every one here has heard of the ackermann function; we'll define it as:




I'm interested in itss inverses though.
There would be three inverses therefore, the first one with relation to x:



which means R for roots, and }u{ is taken to mean: }0{ is subtraction, }1{ division, }2{ roots, }3{ super roots, etc etc

and then are next inverse is taken with relation to y



where 0;log_x(y) = y-x, 1;log_x(y) = y/x, and 2;log_x(y) =

and now, the final inverse, and definitely the most interesting inverse is the inverse taken with relation to u

if



this question is the equivalent of asking



what is u?

it's the act of rearranging an equation to solve for u. It might even seem intuitively impossible.

I've only found one solution to this problem... and that's by using logarithmic semi operators, though I is only defined over domain [0, 2]

Does anyone know if anybody else has ever looked into this inverse function?

When there is a (local) unique inverse , you might use the so-called " series reversion " for its taylor series at a fixpoint.

Or you might try to express ackermann in terms of sexp slog etc but im not sure its possible.

maybe this has occured in older threads.

you can express the domain [0, 2] using sexp slog algos, it's piece wise though.

but I'll show you what happens; 0 <= q <= 1



solve for q, it's practically impossible; same deal for [1, 2]

Well, James, according to PARI/gp u is about 1.5737, because
3[1.5737]4 = ~9

But I do not know why.
I need a taylor-series formula or a recursive formula to get know why.
