Hi all. Can someone tell me the name for the following type of function:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = a^(1/x)

where:

a = a constant

x = the variable...

Also, am I right, that the next function is called an exponential function?

y = a^x

Are the two functions related? Is the first some type of subset of the second?

Thank-ya!
