Its not fancy or anything  its just what worked for me to investigate base eta, with its parabolic convergence. I use parigp, to generate an interpolating polynomial. Only I center the polynomial around sexp(100), where the sexp(z) function is already converging towards e, and is fairly well behaved. Then I generate 25 points on either side of sexp(100), using 67 digits of precision.
You mean, you take the interpolation polynomial at the integerpoints of sexp?
Yeah true, that also yields regular iteration.
I think we discussed this a lot with Ansus  the Newton (interpolation) formula.

Well, now I'm surprised. I've get that coefficients however accurate only up to 6 digits, but maybe they converge if I use higher precision  by the most simple eigendecomposition of the 32x32 carleman matrix.
While the formal h'th powers of the carlemanmatrices occur if I raise the diagonalmatrix of the eigenvalues to the h'th power, Pari/GP is able to convert this to a powerseries in x, if I enter the indeterminate x instead of a explicite hvalue for the powers. (Note that this is the fourth method in my short treatize on "four methods of interpolation")
Well, Sheldon's method seem to allow much more precision and I do not see yet, how I could reproduce this by simply increasing the Pari/GPresources in decimal precision and matrixsize.

First of all, that is one of the bases for which the series expansion of (\exp_b^t(x)) in terms of x is relatively simple with "nice" coefficients, but substituting x=1 (which I think you are talking about) gives a function of t which is not strictly a power series, which makes finding that power series more difficult. Anyways, I believe I have done this before, but I don't have access to my notes right, now, so let me get back to you later today...

Your close to what I'm talking about. I'll write it out in full math format
which maps the growth of addition to multiplication to exponentiation. I hope that base eta will behave better than base 2 and base e behaved.

I hate to be a bit of a dunce but:
is the correct formula for the first series correct? I only ask because this is the code I'm using (and I've also tried ) and neither seem to converge anywhere?
The only convergence I do get, is when I remove the plus/minus 2e.

Hopefully, this helps. The correct formula is
Cheta(z) is the upper entire superfunction of eta, which grows superexponentially as z increases. Unfortunately, how to define cheta(0) is a somewhat arbitrary, since cheta(z) is always bigger than e, as z goes to minus infinity. Jay suggested defining cheta(0)=2e. Then , and cheta(2)=e^e, which seems like a reasonable choice for how to define cheta(0). Centered around 0, the series I posted will generate these values. More recently, Henryk and Dimitrii have written a paper where the upper . Perhaps there will eventually be a reason to pick a definitive value, but that hasn't happened yet.
There is also a lower superfunction for base eta, that I usually refer to as , since , , and there is a singularity at . does not grow superexponentially, but converges towards e as z increases. I recently posted the Taylor series for that function, centered at z=0, here:

This is more what I was looking for, thanks. And another question, do you have a similar taylor series for ? That would be the inverse of the lower super function.

Woah! have you ever thought to consider that since , , and that the cheta function maps the growth of , where is a hyper operator of x order (0 is addition, 1 is multiplication etc etc); or mathematically speaking, another conjecture:
, which should at least be true over domain [0, 2]. To see if its universally true would be very difficult, though.

Thank you very much for the series approximations sheldon, but sadly the humps still occur in base . I'm wondering now if there is a better base to work with or if it's smarter to dump the idea of logarithmic semioperators altogether, as they seem to be a poor extension of ackerman function to domain real.
The only interesting thing I have to report is that:
just like ,
or that where is a logarithmic semi operator.
So my question was, what's the radius of convergence for the cheta series you gave me, and whats the recurrence relation so that I can produce the full function. I just want to test some values. for ex: if then I think we have something, but if it doesn't, oh well.

cheta(z1)=
cheta(z+1)=
Cheta(z) is entire, but the series convergence for a finite number of terms is limited by how close we are to the region of superexponential growth, and how many terms are used. It probably has an effective radius of convergence of about 2 with the number of terms I posted. If you want more convergence as real(z) increases or decreases, use the recurrence relation below. If you want more convergence as imag(z) increases, one way to get that is to generate the series for cheta(z100), centered at 100. For cheta/sexpeta, I actually use Newton Polynomial interpolation, centered around 100 for cheta, and +100 for sexpeta, with a 50 term polynomial, which has pretty good convergence out to a radius of 25 (~28 digits), and is accurate to 50 digits within a unit radius. I also recently included cheta/sexpeta support in my latest kneser.gp program.
