i would like to note that slog cannot be entire nor meromorphic on C AND (!) denote complex iterations consistantly at the same time.

the reason is once again the period , if slog is meromorphic on C then we can solve for slog(x) = 1 , and also slog(x2) = 1 + 2pi i

and slog(x_k) = 1 + 2pi i k in general.

but exp( 1 + 2pi i k) = e for all k.

let slog(Q1) = Q2 , then complex iterations requires that for any complex Z1 :

if slog(Q1) = slog(Q1 + Z1) = Q2 , then slog(Q1 + k Z1) = Q2

assume 3 distinct Z1 Z2 Z3 and integer k1 k2 k3 :

Q2= slog(Q1) = slog(Q1 + Z1) = slog(Q1 + Z2) = slog(Q1 + Z3)

which implies :

Q2= slog(Q1 + k1 Z1) = slog(Q1 + k2 Z2) = slog(Q1 + k3 Z3 )

( also 2pi i periodic which may or may not be a Z1 Z2 Z3 value , doesnt matter )

but that is impossible !!!

since that would be a 3-periodic meromorphic function on C !

thus slog if meromorphic , must be bounded by vector additions and inequalities to avoid 3-periodic behaviour and yet be 2pi i periodic.

( since log(0) = oo entire is totally ruled out )

it might very well be that this tread has an ideal base for tetration ; for which my comments are more usefull than for other bases.

( fixed point within period or not comes to mind )

further example

assume slog is only defined for -2 pi i < im(x) < + 2 pi i

but if slog(A_k) is within this zone , and slog(A_k) = 1 + 2pi i k is solvable for all k , then this is a kind of paradox.

since then A_k has to be dense in a mainly vertical way.

which loses the property of Coo ( unless lineair ) at that set !!!

in fact , if A_k are ' close ' to eachother , it tends to be constant in that zone.

so we end up with - i guess -

slog(z) is defined for -2 pi i < im(z) < + 2 pi i

and maps only to -2 pi i < im(slog(z)) < + 2 pi i
