COMMENTS

Also, largest x such that Gamma(x+1) = x^3. In other words, the largest number whose cube and factorial coincide.

The equation Gamma(x) = x^2 has also negative solutions, one for each negative integer, increasingly closer to these integers: x[1] = -1.5259..., x[2] = -1.806544..., x[3] = -3.017901..., x[4] = -3.997382..., x[5] = -5.000333... etc. The distances from the integers show an interesting pattern, see A339167. - M.
