What is (x^^n)?

It's tetration which represents a double up arrow in Knuth's up arrow notation. Basically a power tower of x's n high:

[tex]x^{x^{.^{.^{.^x}}}}[/tex]

And I don't see any simple solution to this problem.

Im only looking for the formula for integer values of x, will that make it simpler?It's tetration which represents a double up arrow in Knuth's up arrow notation. Basically a power tower of x's n high:

[tex]x^{x^{.^{.^{.^x}}}}[/tex]

And I don't see any simple solution to this problem.

That function is not even **defined** for integer values of x.

Sorry, what I meant was positive integers.That function is not evendefinedfor integer values of x.

ok I got it

d(x ^^ n) / dx = x ^^ n * d(x ^^ ( n -1) * ln x ) / dx

Follow up question:

lim i→ ∞ { d^{i}(x ^^ n) / dx^{i} } converge?

d(x ^^ n) / dx = x ^^ n * d(x ^^ ( n -1) * ln x ) / dx

Follow up question:

lim i→ ∞ { d

It would be better if you type in latex.ok I got it

d(x ^^ n) / dx = x ^^ n * d(x ^^ ( n -1) * ln x ) / dx

Follow up question:

lim i→ ∞ { d^{i}(x ^^ n) / dx^{i}} converge?
