COMMENTS

Sometimes called the Omega constant.
The first 59 digits form a prime: 5671432904097838729999686622103555497538157871865125081351.  Jonathan Vos Post, Nov 09, 2004
LambertW(n)/n, n=1,2,3,4,5,..., can be calculated with the same recurrence as for the numerators in Dirichlet series for logarithms of n using tetration. Convergence is slow for large numbers. See Mathematica program for recurrence. Tetration appears to work also for LambertW(n*(complex number))/n, n=1,2,3,4,5,... See link to mathematics stackexchange. (Conjecture.)  Mats Granvik, Oct 19 2013
Infinite power tower for c = 1/E, i.e., c^c^c^..., where c = 1/A068985.  Stanislav Sykora, Nov 03 2013
Notice the narrow interval exp(gamma) < w(1) < gamma.  JeanFrançois Alcover, Dec 18 2013
Also the solution to x = log(x).  Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 22 2014
