Then we can build a regular tetration function around either of the fixed points. In either case, the function will be periodic, with period given by for f the fixed point. Thus the Laplace transform of sexp_a is: Here, if we expand around the lower fixed point, all the positive coefficients will be zero, since the function tends to the fixed point at . Similarly, if we expand around the upper fixed point, all the negative coefficients will be zero. In either case, is the chosen fixed point. Now from the equation above, we have . But by definition, this is equal to . By equating the terms of the resulting Laplace series, we get the equation . The inner sum is over all integer sequences of length n which sum to k. The finitude of this sum is ensured by the fact that either all positive or all negative coefficients are zero.

Incidentally Dmitrii and I just finished an article about exactly that topic, which I append. RE: Laplace transform of tetration - andydude - 06/01/2009 Wow, nice article! I wept. I think one of the parts that was new to me was the proof that the tetrations developed at the fixed points 2 and 4 are different. You show that their periods are different, thus they must be different. So simple!
