Thus the sequence given by the solutions of the equations$x = 1$ $x^x = 2$ $x^{x^x} = 3$ $x^{x^{x^x}} = 4$ and so on... is the sequence under discussion. The conjecture is that the limit of this sequence is $e^{1/e}$, also known as eta ($\eta$). Numerical evidence indicates that this is true, as the solution for x in ${}^{1000}x = 1000$ is approximately 1.44. lim n-> oo x^^n = n conj : any real x = eta since (eta+q) ^^ n grows faster than n for any positive q , we can use the squeeze theorem lim q -> 0 eta =< x <= eta + q hence x = eta see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeeze_theorem QED regards tommy1729 « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
