Tripent visualized using iterated power towers.

Tripent with arrows

"Fashion" view of tripent using iterated power towers with arrows.

The tripent is equal to \(\lbrace5,5,5\rbrace\) or \(5\lbrace5\rbrace5\) in BEAF, \(5\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow5\) in arrow notation, or 5 heptated to 5.[1]. The term was coined by Jonathan Bowers. This is the fifth Ackermann number.

Googology Wiki user Hyp cos calls this number a trienpent, and it's equal to s(5,5,5), s(5,2,6), s(5,5,1,2), s(5,1,1,3), or s(5,1,1,1,2) in strong array notation. [2]

Etymology Edit

The name of this number is based on tri- (three) and penta- (five), meaning that there are 3 5's in the array.


Notation Approximation
Up-arrow notation \(5\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow5\) (exact)
BEAF \(\{5,5,5\}\) (exact)
Hyper-E notation \(E(5)1\#1\#1\#1\#5\) (exact)
Chained arrow notation \(5\rightarrow5\rightarrow5\) (exact)
Hyperfactorial array notation \(6!4\)
Fast-growing hierarchy \(f_6(4)\)
Hardy hierarchy \(H_{\omega^6}(4)\)
Slow-growing hierarchy \(g_{\varphi(4,0)}(5)\)
