FORMULA

x0 = -((x*ProductLog(-(log(x)/x)))/log(x)), with x = 7/2, where ProductLog is the Lambert W function.

EXAMPLE

x0 = 2.189697551175613504808316814457313054952031983651039793...

z = x0^(7/2) = 15.53618787439250843837688346448101455506861788472622...

z > e^e = 15.15426224... = A073226.

MATHEMATICA

x0 = -((x*ProductLog[-(Log[x]/x)])/Log[x]) /. x -> 7/2; RealDigits[x0, 10, 101] // First

RealDigits[x/.FindRoot[x^(7/2)==(7/2)^x, {x, 2}, WorkingPrecision-> 120]][[1]] (* Harvey P. Dale, Apr 19 2019 *)
