For $\alpha \geq 0$ the transformation $x \mapsto \log(x) - \alpha \log(1-x)$ maps the unit interval to the real line (in fact for $\alpha = 0$ the transformation is not surjective). For $\alpha=1$ this is the logit transformation, which has a well-known inverse. It is also not difficult to find an inverse for $\alpha = 0.5$ and I would guess along these lines for some more $\alpha = 1/N$, $N$ positive natural number. But I do not see a closed form for an arbitrary $\alpha > 0$.
Finding an inverse numerically is not too difficult because the function is strictly monotone, but this is at least aesthetically unpleasing ;)
Is there a way to show that for arbitrary $\alpha$ no such solution can exist, or is there maybe one?
