Yes I was referring to that.

Maybe this can also be mentioned, however the paper should not focus too much on computation. (Though computed graphs are highly appreciated, I particularly remember the beautiful graphs of the regular slog you made. I hope you can revive it for the paper as lots of my own sage scripts got lost in the crash.)

so tetration base e^1/e is linked to iterations of e^x - 1.

and more general base b^1/b iteration is linked to iterations of b^x - 1.

what if b < e ?

we get again the multiple fixpoint problem.

but i wonder if one of those fixpoints is " better " than the other , for instance if one is equal to the newton method for bases < eta.

---

i might be crazy but im thinking about linking iterations : tetration b^1/b , b^x - 1 to a THIRD function that we can iterate.

this in an attempt to attack b > e.

Yes, the link is a linear transformation

.

If you set

, and

and

you have the relation:

.

Iff

has a fixed point

then

has the fixed point

. The fixed points are merely mapped linearly. Also the regular iteration of the conjugate is equal to the conjugate of the regular iteration. So nothing new really occurs.

Yes just set

.

yes, the number of fixed points of

and of

is the same, by linear conjugation nothing new occurs.
