Power towers, known more formally as tetration, is the mathematical operation of taking exponents to the powers of exponents. In the simplest example:

`2`^{2}^{2}

Which simplifies to:

`2`^{4} = 16

Power towers can be of any arbitrary height but they tend to quickly exceed what is expressible in standard decimal notation:

`3`^{3}^{3}^{3}

`3`^{3}^{27}

`3`^{7,625,597,484,987}

The full decimal expansion would take over a trillion characters to represent and write-ups can't be more than 65535 characters long so I can't give it to you but you get the picture. Power towers can be represented with arrow notion as `a^^b`

where "`a`

" is the number in the tower and "`b`

" is the height of the tower. The two above examples would be 2^^3 and 3^^4 respectively. For a more general explanation on how to construct large, powerful numbers read hyper operator.
