COMMENTS

Minimum value of x^x for real x>0.

Also minimum value of 1/x^(1/x) for real x>0 (occurs at e). Equals exp(Pi)/exp(1/exp(1)) * exp(-Pi). - Gerald McGarvey, Sep 21 2004

If (1/e)^(1/e) < y < 1, then x^x = y has two solutions x = a and x = b with 0 < a < 1/e < b < 1. For example, (1/e)^(1/e) < 1/sqrt(2) < 1 and (1/4)^(1/4) = (1/2)^(1/2) = 1/sqrt(2) with 1/4 < 1/e < 1/2. - Jonathan Sondow, Sep 02 2011
