The tetrational looks to converge to the parabolic attracting regular iteration at base $\eta$. This suggests that the resulting fractional iterates of $\exp_b(x)$ converge to the attracting parabolic regular iterates of base $\eta$ when $x < e$. But what about $x > e$? Does it converge to the iterates obtained from the "cheta" function $\check{\eta}(x)$? I think if you recenter the tetrations for different bases>eta, all at the same point, and if the value chosen to recenter at, f(x), is large enough, then the answer may be that it does converge to $\check{\eta}(x)$. For example the upper superfunction at base eta, $\check{\eta}(x)$, can be centered so that $\check{\eta}(0)=2e$. If you take the limit for f(x)=sexp(x) for bases>eta, but approaching eta, all equivalently recentered so that f(0)=2e, then it seems that the sequence of functions would converge arbitrarily closely, so that in the limit, f(x) converges to the $\check{\eta}(x)$ function. I think this would hold in the complex plane as well. The key is that the real part of the pseudo period for sexp for bases approaching but greater than eta gets arbitrarily large. Recentering at 2e, convergence might hold for a little less than half a psuedo period on the left, which is approximately where the inflection point is for sexp(x). This is mostly speculation, btw. - Sheldon « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
