COMMENTS

Define x<n>y recursively as follows (this is a right associative version):

x<0>y = x+1;

x<1>0 = x;

x<2>0 = 0;

x<n>y = ( x<n>(y-1) ) <n-1> x for n>0 and y>0.

We have:

x<1>y = (...((x<0>y)<0>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = x+y;

x<2>y = (...((x<1>y)<1>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = x*y;

x<3>y = (...((x<2>y)<2>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis)  = x^y;

x<4>y = (...((x<3>y)<3>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = (...((x^x)^x)...^x) (a height-y bottom-up tower power, NOT tetration) = x^x^(y-1).

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 0+1 = 1;

a(1) = 1+1 = 2;

a(2) = 2*2 = 4;

a(3) = 3^3 = 27;

a(4) = ((4^4)^4)^4 = 340282366920938463463374607431768211456;

a(5) = 5<5>5 = (((((5<4>5)<4>5)<4>5)<4>5)<4>5)<4>5.
