(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A229171 Define a sequence of real numbers by b(1)=e, b(n+1) = b(n) + log(b(n)); a(n) = smallest i such that b(i) >= e^n. 5
1, 5, 10, 20, 41, 86, 192, 441, 1039, 2493, 6072, 14960, 37199, 93193, 234957, 595562, 1516639, 3877905, 9950908, 25615654, 66127187, 171144672, 443966371, 1154115393, 3005950908 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

EXAMPLE

The initial terms of the b(n) sequence are approximately

2.71828182845904523536029, 3.71828182845904523536029, 5.03154351597726806940929, 6.64727031503970856301384, 8.54147660649653209023621, 10.6864105040926911986276, 13.0553833920216929230460, 15.6245839611886549261305, 18.3734295299727029212384, 21.2843351036624388705641, 24.3423064646657059114213, 27.5345223079930416816192, 30.8499628820185220765989, ...

b(5) is the first term >= e^2, so a(2) = 5.
