COMMENTS

Also, the least local maximum of x*sin(x), which occurs exactly at x = +-A196504, where x = +A196504 is the x-coordinate of this point of tangency of c/x and sin(x) in the first quadrant. There also exists a negative constant d such that d/x and sin(x) are tangent in the fourth quadrant for 0 < x < 2*Pi. - Rick L. Shepherd, Jan 12 2014
