%N a(n) = n<n>n where x<n>y is a right associative hyperoperation.

%C Define x<n>y recursively as follows (this is a right associative version):

%C x<0>y = x+1;

%C x<1>0 = x;

%C x<2>0 = 0;

%C x<n>y = ( x<n>(y-1) ) <n-1> x for n>0 and y>0.

%C We have:

%C x<1>y = (...((x<0>y)<0>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = x+y;

%C x<2>y = (...((x<1>y)<1>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = x*y;

%C x<3>y = (...((x<2>y)<2>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = x^y;

%C x<4>y = (...((x<3>y)<3>y)...y)(y nested parenthesis) = (...((x^x)^x)...^x) (a height-y bottom-up tower power, NOT tetration) = x^x^(y-1).
