[MO] Is there a tetration for infinite cardinalities? (Question in MO)
#3
2^^w = the first inaccessible ordinal.

This is because 2^x = x is not accessible and 2^^w is the smallest such x.

w^^w = 2^(ln(w) 2^^w) = 2^^w = the first inaccessible ordinal.

2^^(2^^w) = the second inaccessible ordinal.

2^^(2^^w) = 2^^(w^^w) = w^^(w^^w).

Pentation

w^^^w = the w th inaccessible ordinal.


Simple.
