COMMENTS

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.

This sequence together with A299241 and A299242 partition the positive integers.

EXAMPLE

The first six terms are the ranks of these towers: t(1) = (2), t(3) = (2,2), t(6) = (2,2,2), t(8) = (3,2,2), t(9) = (2,2,3), t(10) = (2,3,2).

MATHEMATICA

t[1] = {2}; t[2] = {3}; t[3] = {2, 2}; t[4] = {2, 3}; t[5] = {3, 2};

t[6] = {2, 2, 2}; t[7] = {3, 3}; t[8] = {3, 2, 2}; t[9] = {2, 2, 3};

t[10] = {2, 3, 2}; t[11] = {3, 2, 3}; t[12] = {3, 3, 2};

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

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

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

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

   p = p + 1; n = m]]; f = f + 1]

Select[Range[1000], Count[t[#], 2] > Count[t[#], 3] &];   (* A299240 *)

Select[Range[1000], Count[t[#], 2] == Count[t[#], 3] &];  (* A299241 *)

Select[Range[1000], Count[t[#], 2] < Count[t[#], 3] &];   (* A299242 *)
