Re: Plot[(1 + 10^(-k))^(10^k), {k, 2, 9}]


Plot[(1+10^(-k))^(10^k), {k, 2, 9}];

Mathematica has zoomed into the region of the y-axis around E (note that to 
the maximum precision of the tick labels that they all have the same value) 
and you are looking at the noise in the machine representation of the values. 
 Override this zoom by specifying the PlotRange.

Plot[(1+10^(-k))^(10^k), {k, 2, 9}, PlotRange -> All];

or

Plot[(1+10^(-k))^(10^k), {k, 2, 9}, PlotRange -> {{2, 9}, {2.70, 2.72}}];
