 OFFSET 2,2 COMMENTS Given z > 0, there exist positive real numbers x < y, with x^y = y^x = z, if and only if z > e^e. In that case, 1 < x < e < y and (x, y) = ((1 + 1/t)^t, (1 + 1/t)^(t+1)) for some t > 0. (For example, t = 1 gives 2^4 = 4^2 = 16 > e^e.) Proofs of these classical results and applications of them are in Marques and Sondow (2010). e^e = lim_{n->infinity} ((n+1)/n)^((n+1)^(n+1)/n^n), n > 0 an integer; cf. [Vernescu] wherein it is also stated that the assertions of the previous comment above were proved by Alexandru Lupas in 2006. - L.
