COMMENTS

This is also equal to Integral_{x = 0 .. 1 } 1/x^x.

10*Sum_{n = 1 .. infinity} 1/p(n)^p(n+1), where p(n) and p(n+1) are consecutive primes, is equal to Sum_{n = 1 .. infinity} 1/n^n up to the fifth decimal digit. [Paolo P. Lava, May 21 2013]

FORMULA

Constant also equals the double integral int {y = 0..1} int {x = 0..1} 1/(x*y)^(x*y) dx dy. - Peter Bala, Mar 04 2012

Approximately log(3)^e, see Munroe link. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 25 2012
