If the interpolation of the self-tetra-root would yield a valid function, then shoud the interpolation of the simple self-root $n^{1/n}$ also converge to the self-root $x^{1/x}$ on $x>0$. But this seems not to be the case. An interpolation polynomial of degree 400 (401 sample points) still has a negative value at 0.25.     And if we compare the values it seems that the negativity gets rather worse: 101 points: $f(0.25)\approx -0.235$ 201 points: $f(0.25)\approx -0.330$ 301 points: $f(0.25)\approx -0.364$ 401 points: $f(0.25)\approx -0.378$ So it really looks as if the interpolation (even if it converges) does not converge to $x^{1/x}$ which is positive everywhere. So I would conclude that the interpolation of the self-tetra-root also does not converge to a self-tetra-root, even if it converges. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
