How do you write out the sequence 1, 2, 8, 64 ,1024, ... as a function? I couldn't figure it out with my minimal knowledge of mathematics.
I got as far as 2*(2^x) for the '2, 4, 8, 16' but that doesn't really get me anywhere.

ok sci, i want you help me this time naming some good books about something, that i can download or buy. I do not know where to start, and google did not help so much
I did not find anything in the guide, at least that I could recognize it was related.
i want to know "why we like music", and i want to know all the dimensions of the issue
i want books about
Mathematical theory of music (harmony, rhythm, and so on)
Neuroscience involved in this
psychology and maybe philosophy involved
as I said, i don't know where to start, these are the fields that I believe are involved, but if you guys think I'm skipping something, say it please.
ALSO. I'll spend the necessary time to read all the books. but I'm not a math expert and that's something I want to fix. could you guys list some good books that can give me a general view of the field. something pleb tier like "A Briefer History of Time" or introductory books, or similar. this way I could read more advanced books later, knowing what I'm doing
help me guys... and sorry for my english, not my native language.

The Jets of NGC 1097
Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh
Enigmatic spiral galaxy NGC 1097 shines in southern skies, about 45 million light-years away in the chemical constellation Fornax. Its blue spiral arms are mottled with pinkish star forming regions in this colorful galaxy portrait. They seem to have wrapped around a small companion galaxy below and left of center, about 40,000 light-years from the spiral's luminous core. That's not NGC 1097's most peculiar feature, though. The very deep exposure hints of faint, mysterious jets, most easily seen to extend well beyond the bluish arms toward the lower right. In fact, four faint jets are ultimately recognized in optical images of NGC 1097. The jets trace an X centered on the galaxy's nucleus, but probably don't originate there. Instead, they could be fossil star streams, trails left over from the capture and disruption of a much smaller galaxy in the large spiral's ancient past. A Seyfert galaxy, NGC 1097's nucleus also harbors a supermassive black hole.
