Definition df-exp 10983
 Description: Define exponentiation to nonnegative integer powers. This definition is not meant to be used directly; instead, exp0 10986 and expp1 10988 provide a the standard recursive definition. The up-arrow notation is used by Donald Knuth for iterated exponentiation (Science 194, 1235-1242, 1976) and is convenient for us since we don't have superscripts. 10-Jun-2005: The definition was extended to include zero exponents, so that per the convention of Definition 10-4.1 of [Gleason] p. 134. 4-Jun-2014: The definition was extended to include negative integer exponents. The case gives the value , so we will avoid this case in our theorems. (Contributed by Raph Levien, 20-May-2004.) (Revised by NM, 15-Oct-2004.)
