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.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

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

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.
