Not sure why Google and Wolfram Alpha are interpreting this differently from the way I intend it to be interpreted, or how to make them interpret it the way I intend it, but the way I'm doing the order of operations I get about 10195.14

Where BB(n) is the maximum number of shifts of a 2-symbol n-state Turing Machine:

BB(3)^2 = 11449

Um, the cube of 6 is 216, while we get 10195 which is more than ^5ing.

Well he's right asymptotically, it's just that the +1 has a large effect for small n. Specifically, if you look at what power of n,0 gives you (n+1),0, the number approaches 3 very very fast (It starts out 5.2, 3.9, 3.5, 3.4, then the numbers are too big to continue, but you can use the following to see that it continues on towards 3)

n, grows like n^3, but there are some extra stuffs, which become less relevant as n gets large, but all the n+1's in place of n's make it seem faster at the start. In particular, n, < (n+2)^3. (n+1 would work except it's not strict for n=0)

n,0 is n+1 applications of the comma operator to n+1.

n+1, < (n+3)^3
(n+1,), < ((n+3)^3)^3 = (n+3)^9
((n+1,),), < ((n+3)^9)^3 = (n+3)^27

inductively we get that n,0 < (n+3)^3^(n+1), which is asymptotically somewhat less than n^n^(n/2) but close enough. (The exact same argument shows that n^3^(n+1) is a lower bound)

Now back to the original claim, to answer what power of x gives y, you do ln (y) / ln (x). To see what power of n,0 gives (n+1),0 we thus do:
ln((n+1),0)/ln(n,0) < ln ((n+4)^3^(n+2)) / ln (n^3^(n+1)) = 3 ln (n+4)/ ln (n), and this rather quickly goes to 3. [the same argument gives 3 as a lower bound by switching where the +2 got applied)

### Re: My Number is Bigger! (again)

Thanks mike. So I gather the function would have a much faster growth if instead of what I'm doing I simply did f(n)=n^4 (i.e. there's some number n by which n,0 < n^4.) The n,0 function does indeed have cubic growth.

mike-l wrote:n, grows like n^3, but there are some extra stuffs, which become less relevant as n gets large

Yes. At n=14612 the difference is already negligible (3 119 965 528 208 368 Vs. 3 119 880 122 529 561 - the former is the result of 2,0 or (146121,) while the later is the result of 146121^3, so the "+2n^2+2n+1" thing can indeed be dropped off safely once n gets big enough; I wonder if I could simplify the function to some (n+x)^3, as it seems it'd be easy to make it easily grow faster and have the same effect on small numbers with some big enough x)

The idea here is I'm never really going to use big numbers as inputs, as by then it's better to just use more 0s at the right of the ,

I actually did evaluate 2,0 and got about 3.12*10^15. Good to know we're on the same page.

I guess that's 2^(2^(2^2)) = 65536, since ((2^2)^2)^2 is 256, much smaller than 26000.

Okay, 2*5[0]/3 ~ 66666.67

Yes, ^s are resolved from right to left when no order is specified.

Also, it seems I've been making some mistakes in my calculations, as apparently (2*n)^2 is 4n^2, and I should be using 2n^2

Nah, I'm making each calculation manually by abuse of wolframalpha.com and Big Number Calculator (for top speed.)

For some reason this turns out much easier for me than dividing by 2 even numbers and multiplying by 3 and adding 1 to odd numbers on the Collatz game...
