another infinite composition gaussian method clone
another infinite composition gaussian method clone

Yeah nothing huge to mention.

But just another to add to the list of gaussian method , beta method and similar methods.

we want f(s+1) = exp( t(s) * f(s) )

and t(s) strictly rises from 0 at s = -oo to 1 at s = + oo in a fast way.

The gaussian method had t(s) = (1 + erf(s))/2.

The beta has t(s) = 1/(1 + exp(-s)).

the incomplete gamma method had t(s) = 1/(1 + inc.gamma(-s))


You get the idea.

So we want to construct a t(s).

We need something that looks like erf(s) or tanh(s)

Let c = 2/pi

Then such a candidate is the " special function " :

c tt(x)

where tt(x) is the " tommy tan " function ( which I invented many decades ago as a teenager, and somewhat inspired me to do math ... on the other hand I forgot about it mainly lol )

see here where my friend mick asks about the value c :

tt(x) = sum_(n>0) (-1)^[n+1] x^(2n-1) [(2n)! ln(2n)]^(-1)

or for the tex fans :

tt(x) = \sum_{n>0} (-1)^{[n+1]} x^{2n-1} [(2n)! \ln(2n)]^{-1}\\

( notice tt(-x) = - tt(x) )

then t(s) becomes (1 + c tt(s))/2.

NOTICE that c tt(s) is entire !

Now this function has been resurrected and given a life purpose , it might be nice to investigate its properties.


I have been thinking/dreaming about an addition function formula tt(a+b) = ... or an asymptotical addition formula.
But maybe that is just a dream not worth persuing.


( and ofcourse there are " fake function ideas " related to this but i have mentioned this already too often )


Honestly, I'm super thankful that my ideas have affected you so much, Tommy. But I'd be much more interested in a discussion of the family of solutions.

Let's take:

T[t](s+1) = e^{t(s) T(s)}\\

Where the functions: \(t\) form a quasi space of functions such that:

\sum_{j=1}^\infty |t(s-j)| < \infty\\


T[t](s) = \Omega_{j=1}^\infty e^{t(s-j)z}\,\bullet z\\

But the "addition" on this space is \(t_0 \oplus t_1 = \frac{t_0(s) + t_1(s)}{2}\), and \(t(\infty) = 1\). Both mine and your methods, and all of your methods belong to this space. I'm pretty fucking confident nothing is going to work for \(b=e\), it might for others. But base \(e\) is just so fucking volatile. And I'm confident both our methods fail at holomorphy in \(\mathbb{C}\).I'd be very surprised at this point if any \(t\) produces holomorphic functions. And if we do find one, it'll be partitioned as \(\Im s \to \pm \infty\) that \(t \to L^{\pm}\). Or something like that.... We can only find a representation for Kneser in this manner. We're not going to break things....
I am more optimistic
