COMMENTS

Positive real numbers x < y with x^y = y^x are parameterized by (x,y) = ((1 + 1/t)^t,(1 + 1/t)^(t+1)) for t > 0. For example, t = 2 gives (x,y) = (9/4,27/8). See Sondow and Marques 2010, pp. 155-157.

(9/4)^(27/8) = (27/8)^(9/4) corresponds to (4/9)^(4/9) = (8/27)^(8/27) (see A194789) under the equivalence x^y = y^x <==> (1/x)^(1/x) = (1/y)^(1/y).
