 OFFSET -1,4 COMMENTS Regardless of whether one sets 0^0=1 or 0^0=0 we have a(0)=0. Number of digits in terms n>3: 155 (n=4), 2185 (n=5), 36306 (n=6), 695975 (n=7), 15151336 (n=8) This sequence can also be written as H_4(n,3) in standard hyperoperation notation or as (n "up-arrow"(2) 3) in Knuth up-arrow notation. For more info on hyperoperations see A054871. First four terms in base 36 are 0, 1, g, 2pb5fusor. - Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Jun 15 2011 Next term in base 36 is 14PLKI42MDV1MT36I2RNAK3GINNT5VCX207HPUF9X0VJ6I1I7H29NU12WLS3ULFV1YYABI94UA3WAUAMSXZ4SNWV27FYA36HQDJ4. - Alonso del Arte, Jul 01 2012 0^^3 = 0 since 0^^k = 1 for even k, 0 for odd k, k >= 0. - Daniel Forgues, May 18 2013 REFERENCES N.
