Do you mean (x^x)^x or x^(x^x)? I'm assuming the former.

1. It is not at all imposible; note that this equals: [tex](x^{x})^{x}=x^{x^{2}}[/tex]but can you do (x^x)^x ??

it seems impossible

Rewriting this as:

[tex]x^{x^{2}}=e^{x^{2}\ln(x)}[/tex]

We may readily differentate this by means of the chain rule, yielding the derivative:

[tex]x^{x^{2}}(2x\ln(x)+x)[/tex]

2. Please do not re-open nearly 6-year old threads.
