Re: A Special Number

Hi ganesh;

In order to identify that number since I don't immediately recognize it, can you provide more digits. Then I will PSLQ it.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: A Special Number

Looks like it's e^(1/e).

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: A Special Number

Hi;

Thats close:

1.444661861 ≈ 1.444667861 we will need a judges decision on this.

Re: A Special Number

Thats the Number. It is special because n^n^n^n.... ad infinitum is  finite and nth root of n is maximum n. Both the properties are applicable.
Exellent, Both mathsy and bobby.
