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 have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

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

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

Thats close:

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

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.
