The hyperfactorial is defined as \(H(n) = \prod^{n}_{i = 1} i^i = 1^1 \cdot 2^2 \cdot 3^3 \cdot 4^4 \cdot \ldots \cdot n^n\).[1]

The first few values of \(H(n)\) for \(n = 1, 2, 3, 4, \ldots\) are 1, 4, 108, 27648, 86400000, 4031078400000, 3319766398771200000, 55696437941726556979200000, 21577941222941856209168026828800000, ... (OEIS A002109). The sum of the reciprocals of these numbers is 2.2592954398150629..., which can be approximated as \(\sqrt[12]{17688}\), or more precisely as \(\sqrt[7]{\sqrt[7]{3^{4}\cdot67\cdot3929\cdot10371376751}}\), a curious 18-decimal-place approximation where we have a double 7th root (7 is prime) of the product of seven prime factors.
