I was reading an article that said about the value of $i^i$, and I thought to do the following $$\left(i^{i^{i^{i^{.^{.^.}}}}}\right)$$i.e, infinite powers of $ i $.

- What's the thing with $\sqrt{-1} = i$
- Equation of ellipse, hyperbola, parabola in complex form
- Geometric interpretation of Pythagorean_theorem in complex plane?
- Find all the values of $w$ ∈ C that satisfy the equation.
- Non-integer powers of negative numbers
- ln(z) as antiderivative of 1/z
- Express $u(x,y)+v(x,y)i$ in the form of $f(z)$
- Complex numbers equation: $z^4 = -16$
- Maximum of $|(z-a_1)\cdots(z-a_n)|$ on the unit circle
- Square root of a complex number

Suppose $z=i^{i^{i^{i^{.^{.^.}}}}}$. Then, $i^z=z$. And now…

Let’s play fast and loose with things. Assume the answer is $x+iy$. Then

$$x+iy=i^{x+iy}=e^{i{\pi\over2}(x+iy)}=e^{-\pi y/2}(\cos(\pi x/2)+i\sin(\pi x/2))$$

from which we can conclude

$$x^2+y^2=e^{-\pi y}\quad\text{and}\quad {y\over x}=\tan(\pi x/2)$$

It follows that $x$ is a solution of

$$(x\sec(\pi x/2))^2=e^{-\pi x\tan(\pi x/2)}$$

I get $x\approx 0.438282936727$ for this equation, which agrees with what Matthew Conroy gave in a comment under Foo Barigno’s answer.

If you iterate over a few towers, you’ll see that it does converge towards a point in the complex plane. This point is approximately $0.438283+0.360592i$
