COMMENTS

Also decimal expansion of the other solution to log(x)/x = log(5)/5.

Also the limit of infinite tetration a^a^...^a, where a = 5^(1/5).

Let b be a rational number > e, then: if b is not of the form b = (1 + 1/s)^(s+1) for some positive integer s, then the other solution to b^x = x^b (or equivalently, log(x)/x = log(b)/b) is transcendental. In particular, if b is a positive integer other than 1, 2 and 4, then the other solution to b^x = x^b is transcendental (Vassilev-Missana, p. 23).
