COMMENTS

Old definition was: Decimal digits of limit(f(n)), where f(1) = e-log(e), f(n) = f(f(n-1)).

Let f(x) be lesser of the two solutions of s - log(s) = x; then A226571 represents f(e). [See however the comments in A226571. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 09 2017]

FORMULA

EXAMPLE

limit(f(n)) = 2.0167797639...

MATHEMATICA

Program 1:

f[s_, accuracy_] := FixedPoint[N[s - Log[#], accuracy] &, 1]

g[s_, accuracy_] := FixedPoint[N[s + Log[#], accuracy] &, 1]

d1 = RealDigits[f[E, 200]][[1]]  (* A226573 *)

d2 = RealDigits[g[E, 200]][[1]]  (* A226574 *)

s /. NSolve[s - Log[s] == 2, 200] (* both constants *)

Program 2:
