### Calculating the residue of power towers

I want to calculate the residue of a power tower. How do I do that? For example, I want to know the answer to this: $$2 \uparrow\uparrow 10 \pmod{10^9}$$
### Fixed Point of $x_{n+1}=i^{x_n}$ [duplicate]
For $x \in \Bbb C$, let $f(x)=i^x = \exp(i\pi x)$, where $i^2=-1$. Then find the fixed points for $f$. EDIT: Let for all $n\geq 1$ $$\large a_n=\underbrace{i^{i^{\cdots i}}}_{\text{n times}}$$ My ...
### Limit involving power tower: $\lim\limits_{n\to\infty} \frac{n+1}n^{\frac n{n-1}^\cdots}$
What is the value of the following limit? $$\large \lim_{n \to \infty} \left(\frac{n+1}{n}\right)^{\frac{n}{n-1}^{\frac{n-1}{n-2}^{...}}}$$ In general what do limits of infinite decreasing numbers ...
