COMMENTS

e^(1/e) = 1/((1/e)^(1/e)) (reciprocal of A072364).

Let w(n+1)=A^w(n); then w(n) converges if and only if (1/e)^e <= A <= e^(1/e) (see the comments in A073230) for any initial value w(1)>0. If A=e^(1/e) then lim n -> infinity w(n) = e. - Benoit Cloitre, Aug 06 2002

x^(1/x) is maximum for x = e and the maximum value is e^(1/e). This gives an interesting and direct proof that 2 < e < 4 as 2^(1/2) < e^(1/e) > 4^(1/4) while 2^(1/2) = 4^(1/4). - Amarnath Murthy, Nov 26 2002

For large n, A234604(n)/A234604(n-1) converges to e^(1/e). - Richard R. Forberg, Dec 28 2013
