# Physical Applications of Tetration

*From*: "Ioannis" <morpheus@xxxxxxxxxxxx>*Date*: Thu, 29 Mar 2007 19:30:00 +0000 (UTC)

Greetings everyone,

have any of you come across any references which link tetration to any

physical processes?

I have checked out Knoebel's article "Exponentials Reiterated", but the

applications he cites in biology are sort of lukewarm and are only indirectly

related to tetration.

I tried to look into nuclear fission but it looks as though such processes are

mainly growing as simple exponentials. Tetration seems to be too "fast" (or

too powerful if you wish) to describe anything physical in this universe.

I was thinking that perhaps this was a good reason why the hierarchy of

operators {+,*,^,^^,...} has a discrepancy at "^^". Maybe tetration is too

powerful a process to describe anything physical.

If any of you have come across any actual physical applications, (such as

something "growing" tetrationally, for example), I would appreciate the

reference.

Many thanks,
