COMMENTS

Geometric interpretation: Consider the two curves y = exp(x) and its inverse y = log(x). They have two shared tangent lines, one with slope b, passing through the kissing points [a,b] and [1/b,-a], the other one with slope 1/b, passing through the kissing points [-a,1/b] and [b,a], where b = exp(a). The values of b and 1/b are reported in A263357.
