%C Suppose that S is a set of real numbers. An S-power-tower, t, is a number t = x(1)^x(2)^...^x(k), where k >= 1 and x(i) is in S for i = 1..k. We represent t by (x(1),x(2),...,x(k), which for k > 1 is defined as (x(1),((x(2),...,x(k-1)); (2,3,2) means 2^9. The number k is the *height* of t. If every element of S exceeds 1 and all the power towers are ranked in increasing order, the position of each in the resulting sequence is its *rank*. See A299229 for a guide to related sequences.

%C This sequence is a self-inverse permutation of the positive integers.

%e t(12) = (3,3,2) and t(15) = (2,3,3) = reversal of t(12); therefore a(12) = 15.

%t t = {2}; t = {3}; t = {2, 2}; t = {2, 3}; t = {3, 2};

%t t = {2, 2, 2}; t = {3, 3}; t = {3, 2, 2}; t = {2, 2, 3};

%t t = {2, 3, 2}; t = {3, 2, 3}; t = {3, 3, 2};

%t z = 190; g[k_] := If[EvenQ[k], {2}, {3}]; f = 6;

%t While[f < 13, n = f; While[n < z, p = 1;

%t While[p < 12, m = 2 n + 1; v = t[n]; k = 0;

%t While[k < 2^p, t[m + k] = Join[g[k], t[n + Floor[k/2]]]; k = k + 1];

%t p = p + 1; n = m]]; f = f + 1]

%t r[n_] := Reverse[t[n]]

%t Flatten[Table[Select[Range, t[#] == r[n] &], {n, 1, 1500}]]; (* A299237 *)
