The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.

 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..90. FORMULA With the exponentiation definition E_{i=1..n} c(i) := c(1)^(c(2)^(c(3)^(...(c(n-1)^(c(n))))...))); E_{i=1..0} := 1; example: E_{i=1..4} 3 = 3^(3^(3^3)) = 3^(3^27), we get: a(E_{i=1..n} (i+1)) = a(E_{i=1..n-1} (i+1))+1, for n>=1. G.f.: g(x)= 1/(1-x)*sum_{k=0..infinity} x^(E_{i=1..k} (i+1)). The explicit first terms of the g.f. are g(x)=(x+x^2+x^(2^3)+x^(2^3^4)+(x^2^3^4^5)+...)/(1-x) =(x+x^2+x^8+x^2417851639229258349412352+...)/(1-x). EXAMPLE a(n)=1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for n=1, 2, 2^3, 2^3^4, 2^3^4^5 =1, 2, 8, 2417851639229258349412352, 2^3^1024. CROSSREFS Cf. A001069, A010096, A084558, A211661, A211666, A211668, A211670.
