A derivative conjecture
#1
Dear all,

I would like to bring to your attention about a derivative conjecture, which can be downloaded from

http://www.siam.org/journals/categories/12-003.php

This conjecture is related to the rate of convergence of iterated exponentials.

Maybe it is trivial when I look at it again , but I see variables z,a,k,p,t and maybe more. Then you talk about a derivative and say this and that is trivial. For starters derivative with respect to which variable ??

"things should be stated as simple as possible , but not any simpler " Albert Einstein.

In other words I would prefer a bit more detail and context.

Then I might take a look at it. Afterall imho conjectures look a bit random without some background or motivation , and getting a question popular in a controversial field ( like tetration ) requires extra care for clarity.

Im a fighter for free access to info which might contradict the goals of your career or university or even certain website policies , if that turns out to be the case im sorry if I might loose intrest if you do not clarify.

I might seem harsch but imho being clear is important from both the perspectives of math , communication and popularizing ideas. Although I realise that " going fast " / " skipping the trivial " might make you look more " intelligent " and " professional ".

the probability of getting a problem solved depends imho on its popularity and searchability and that is also the reason im into free access.

Welcome to the tetration forum

regards

Hi Tommy,

Thanks for the comments. At the end of the problem, it cites a paper, which contains motivations and background of the conjecture.

Best,

matrix

Dear " matrix "

I still have not seen a clear statement anywhere , in particular here at this forum.

If you do not wish to loose intrest i advise you to post the problem here as clear as possible.

regards
