FORMULA

With the exponentiation definition E_{i=1..n} c(i) := c(1)^(c(2)^(c(3)^(...(c(n1)^(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..n1} (i+1))+1, for n>=1.
G.f.: g(x)= 1/(1x)*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)+...)/(1x) =(x+x^2+x^8+x^2417851639229258349412352+...)/(1x).
