A225053 Second terms of continued fractions for power towers e, e^e, e^e^e, ... 4
1, 6, 9, 4 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET
1,2
COMMENTS
It was conjectured (but remains unproved) that none of the power towers e, e^e, e^e^e, ... are integers. If so, the corresponding continued fractions contain at least 2 terms. If the conjecture fails, let the corresponding a(n) = 0.

EXAMPLE
a(3) = 9 because floor(1/frac(e^e^e)) = 9, since e^e^e ~ 3814279.10476.
MATHEMATICA
$MaxExtraPrecision = Infinity; terms = 4; Map[Function[x, ContinuedFraction[x, 2][[2]]], NestList[Exp, E, terms - 1]]
CROSSREFS
A056072 yields the first term of the continued fraction.
