COMMENTS

See A075877 for the left-associative version (which grows much more slowly). Usually the "^" operator is considered right-associative (so this is the "natural" version), i.e., a^b^c = a^(b^c) since (a^b)^c could be written a^(b*c) instead, while there is no such simplification for a^(b^c).

If n's first digit is succeeded by an odd number of consecutive 0's, a(n) is 1. If it is by an even number, a(n) is the first digit of n (A000030). - Alex Costea, Mar 27 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = A075877(n) for n < 212; a(n) = A133500(n) for n < 100.

a(10n+1) = a(n).

EXAMPLE

a(253) = 2^5^3 = 2^(5^3) = 2^125 = 42535295865117307932921825928971026432.

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) local m, r; m, r:= n, 1;

      while m>0 do r:= irem(m, 10, 'm')^r od; r

    end:
