for a project i need to examine the behaviour of the sequence: 1, x, x^x, x^(x^x), x^(x^(x^x)), ... and so on, for x>1. firstly i need to define a function, say f, in terms of x and n, so that for example f[k,3]=k^k^k. I've been trying to do this using nest but i am not sure exactly how to do it. if anyone has any hints as to how i could define this function on mathematica and then what i should use to examine whether the above sequence converges or diverges for values close to 1, that will be much appreciated.
thank you
