COMMENTS

Equivalently, the root of x^(x+1) = (x+1)^x.
From Cino Hilliard, Sep 13 2008: (Start)
Also a root of 1/(x^(1/x)1)  x = 0 and 1/(x^(1/x)1/x1)  x = 0, which also contains
the root 5.50798565277317825758902... 1/(x^(1/x)1) ~ Pi(x) and
1/(x^(1/x)1/x1) ~ Pi(x), which is a much better approximation. These roots also can be computed by the recurrences x = 1/(x^(1/x)1) and x = 1/(x^(1/x)1/x1). (End)
