excuse me for my bad english, but i'm trying hard.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. function f(x), for x>0 is defined with:

f(x)=(x^4)^(x^2)

^ - potency

find stationary points of the function f(x) on the interval (0,infinite).

what exactly do i do here?

do i use logarithm on both sides, and then i get:

log(y)=(x^2)*log(x^4)

and then i different (differential) both sides, and set y'=0

and i calculate x?

is this right so far?

now i want to get local min. and max.

and i different again, and then what?

and i need to find out if these points are globlal min and max.

2. integral from 1 to infinity (((x^2+1)^(1/2))/((x^3)*(x^2-1)^(1/2)))dx

and ideas what could i do? what would "u" be? (u^2)=(x^2)+1?

please help me asap

thank you!
