 OFFSET 0,1 LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..5000 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Lambert W-Function FORMULA From A.H.M. Smeets, Nov 19 2018: (Start) Equals LambertW(2). Consider LambertW(z), where z is a complex number: let x(0) be an arbitrary complex number; x(n+1) = z*exp(-x(n)); if lim_{n -> inf) x(n) exists (which is the case for z = 2), then LambertW(z) = lim_{n -> inf) x(n). The region in the complex plane for which this seems to work is as follows: let z = x+iy, then -1/e < x < e for y = 0 and -c < y < c, c = 1.9612... for x = 0. It is not known if the area is open or closed. (End) EXAMPLE 0.852605502013725491346472414695317466898... MATHEMATICA Plot[{E^x, 1/x, 2/x, 3/x, 4/x}, {x, 0, 2}] t = x /.
