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. - Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Dec 18 2013

Also the solution to x = -log(x). - Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 22 2014
