A more consistent definition of tetration of tetration for rational exponents
UVIR Wrote:

As I already explained before it is not "consequently easily seen" but a consequence of the law and similarly for exponentiation of the law .
This law holds for natural and and if we demand it to hold for fractional and and too, then necessarily is the inverse of and is the inverse of by:


but we have not for natural a and b and hence can not generally demand it for fractional a and b.

Quote:Now, the very subtle problem which I guess nobody sees (for some strange reason) is that if the operator for tetrating to (1/n) *is NOT* the same operator as that of the tetraroot of order n, then we have an operator discrepancy at a very low level in the hierarchy of operators:

Yes, well we have to live with it. But except that we have to deal with more different operations on the tetra level, I see no problems arising from the inequality. We also have to live with for example:


Quote:Besides, there's no teling whether tetration as defined using tetraroots is or is not continuous.

There is a telling. It is not continuous at (the exponent) 0 (if we assume that tetration is defined on natural numbered exponents in the usual way, particularly ). You showed already that for in your definition.
