 OFFSET 10,1 COMMENTS Using N_b to denote "N read in base b", the sequence is ......10....11.....12.....13.......etc. ..............10.....11.....12......... .......................10.....11....... ................................10..... where the subscripts are evaluated from the bottom upwards. More precisely, "N_b" means "Take decimal expansion of N and evaluate it as if it were a base-b expansion". A "dungeon" of numbers. a(10) = 10; for n > 10, a(n) = n read as if it were written in base a(n-1). - Jianing Song, May 22 2021 REFERENCES David Applegate, Marc LeBrun and N. J. A.

Monthly, 116 (2009) 466-467. Brady Haran and Neil Sloane, Dungeon Numbers, Numberphile video (2020). (extra) FORMULA If a, b >= 10, then a_b is roughly 10^(log(a)log(b)) (all logs are base 10 and "roughly" means it is an upper bound and using floor(log()) gives a lower bound). Equivalently, there exists c > 0 such that for all a, b >= 10, 10^(c log(a)log(b)) <= a_b <= 10^(log(a)log(b)). Thus a_n is roughly 10^product(log(9+i),i=1..n), or equivalently, a_n = 10^10^(n loglog n + O(n)).
