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)). EXAMPLE a(13) = ((13_12)_11)_10 = (15_11)_10 = 16_10 = 16. MAPLE asubb := proc(a, b) local t1; t1:=convert(a, base, 10); add(t1[j]*b^(j-1), j=1..nops(t1)): end; # asubb(a, b) evaluates a as if it were written in base b s2:=[10]; for n from 11 to 35 do t1:=n; for i from 1 to n-10 do t1:=asubb(t1, n-i); od: s2:=[op(s2), t1]; od; CROSSREFS Cf.
