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/x-1) - x = 0, which also contains

the root 5.50798565277317825758902... 1/(x^(1/x)-1) ~ Pi(x) and

1/(x^(1/x)-1/x-1) ~ 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/x-1). (End)
