f(2^x) = f(4^x + 2^(x+1) + 2) - f(4^x + 1)
#1
Let f(x) be a non-constant real-analytic function and for real x it satisfies :

f(2^x) = f(4^x + 2^(x+1) + 2) - f(4^x + 1)

This should be solvable.

Isnt that equivalent to
f(y) = f(y^2+2y+2) - f(y^2 +1)
?

not quite.

remember that an exponential function a^z = 0 has no finite solution z for a =/= 0.

it is strongly related of course.

informally speaking , we want to avoid certain fixpoints and zero's on the reals ...
