 A216062 Number of distinct values taken by 9th derivative of x^x^...^x (with n x's and parentheses inserted in all possible ways) at x=1. 2
 1, 1, 2, 4, 9, 20, 48, 115, 286, 719, 1838, 4734, 12247, 31617, 81208 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS a(4) = 4 because the A000108(3) = 5 possible parenthesizations of x^x^x^x lead to 4 different values of the 9th derivative at x=1: (x^(x^(x^x))) -> 3010680; ((x^x)^(x^x)), ((x^(x^x))^x) -> 3863808; (x^((x^x)^x)) -> 6019416; (((x^x)^x)^x) -> 6333336.
