Imaginary zeros of f(z)= z^(1/z) (real valued solutions f(z)>e^(1/e))
#91
Hi experts,

Please tell me what are the exact values of selfzeros on the outer shape for b= 3/2, 2, sqrt(3) , 3, 4? (it is +-I for b= e^(pi/2))?

Thank You in advance,

Ivars

While the solution of the problem to find complex fixpoints t for real bases b>exp(exp(-1)) using Lambert-W which were given here satisfies all needs the problem was only unsatisfactory solved for the case of numerical evaluation when the Lambert-W including the choice of branches is not available in a software (like Pari/GP).

My own proposal was based on a binary search using a formula depending on a single parameter beta. But because the number of iterations for good approximations increase quickly I tried to improve that method by employing Newton/Raphson instead of binary search.

That led to a solution where I need only 10 to 15 iterations (number of correct digits seem to increase quadratically), and also gave an interesting powerseries for the involved function which must iterated.
