Trouble to find answer
#1
Hey there,
First of all, I'm completely new to calculus in any form, so please excuse any completely obvious errors if there are any.
I was just wondering the other day about the derivative of a Power Tower. I tried to treat it as a x^n, and came up with
f(a, b) = a \uparrow \uparrow b
f'(a, b) = (a \uparrow \uparrow b) a^{(a \uparrow \uparrow [b-1]) -1}
Is this correct?
Cheers,
Amherst
