no , im not kidding , apart from my sinh method im considering a cosh method.

although it might be more complicated or speculative.

it might be insightfull to plot things.

consider

exp(1/e)<b<sqrt(e)

f(x) - f^[-1](x) = 2*cosh(ln(b)*x)

for variable x and fixed b ( base ).

i bet you can find more functional equations from this one.

for instance to express f^[-1](x) in terms of f(x) and elementary functions.

the solution is unique for R-> R.

replace x by f(x) and let g(x) be the super of f(x).

then we get a difference equation for g(x).

we solve that difference equation , now we go from g(x) to f(x) or we find the taylor for f(x) from the equation ( or both , in programming ).

similar to the sinh method : since f is close to 2*cosh(ln(b)*x)) and 2*cosh(ln(b)*x) is close to b^x , we have a new method.
