Henryk, it is not so easy... Sorry... but.. Wait... May I use complex or the basefunction is supposed to be real? Do you mean "real polynomial"?

I think this approach is going to fail.
Because then the superfunction is of the form which means that it is a regular superfunction at some fixed point with .
The only exception would be that we have a complex fixed point (of a real polynomial) with a real derivative , is that possible?

Yes real base and super function.

f(x)=x+1
F(x)=C+x
Haha, good hint to exclude the trivial case.
Btw. answers are not posted directly in the open problems thread. I explained that thoroughly in the beginning of that thread.

. Ah, I understand. It can be singular, pulling out any property you like, from the exponential tail. may approach its limiting value, and
may do that you like, at least until the closest cutline. While within the range of the holomorphism, you may deform and squeese the superfunction as you want with the transform indicated; it may be good for the application, or for the representation, or for the evaluation; no other deep meaning, that would allow or prohibit some particular properties. Roughly, you can convert ANY real holomorphic monotonic function to ANY other real holomorphic monotonic function, at least until to reach a singularity or a cutline.

this question or similar has occured before.
some papers have been written about it , i considered similar questions and i believe it appeared on the math forum ...
ill have to dig ...
i believe hypergeometric solutions were found ...
but sometimes a hypergeo can be expressed by elementary functions ...
personally i considered inverse hypergeometric functions , but those also can be simplified sometimes.
so im optimistic ...
have you tried simple cases such as a*exp(b^x)*exp(c*x) + d ?

Oh that would be great if you could recover some references!

I am still in the process of trying, however like always not much dedicatable time.
