 A more consistent definition of tetration of tetration for rational exponents UVIR Junior Fellow Posts: 16 Threads: 2 Joined: Aug 2007 10/01/2007, 07:32 PM bo198214 Wrote:... then we have a more serious problem. If you define ${^0x}$ to be different from 1, say ${^0x}=a$, then ${^1x}=x^a$. And in common use of the word tetration ${^1x}=x$ (hopefully you dont want to change this for the sake of continuity of your construction). So if you accept this then any (real) value of $a$ different from 1 poses the contradiction $x^a=x$. You see that it is necessary to define ${^0x}=1$. I see your point. My definition forces: ${^0}x=x^{1/x}\\ {^1}x=x^{x^{1/x}}\\ {^2}x=x^{x^{x^{1/x}}}$ ... which, I guess goes against standard notation. I am leaving for vacations tomorrow, so I will try to examine the function defined as above and see if there's anything more interesting about it. If there is, I will report it back in a week or so. Thanks to all who participated. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
