Bo,

I appreciate your look into this question. I am working on some interesting conjectures related to infinity using iteration theory.

Good catch on me starting with j=1. Thanks very much.

You mean: What is the infimum of x such that your sequence still converges?

Interesting question, I never heard about that, and honestly I can not imagine that there exist results about it.

One would have to start showing that it converges for x=3 and that it diverges for x=1.

Also there is slight difference, the loop that you give computes:

^(1.444 + 1/4^x) ^ (1.444 + 1/3^x) ^ (1.444 + 1/2^x)

because you start with j=0.

If you would start with j=1 what would produce the sequence you give:

^(1.444 + 1/4^x) ^ (1.444 + 1/3^x) ^ (1.444 + 1/2^x) ^ (1.444 + 1)

but probably a different value of x.
