Classifying Functions of the form $f(x+y)=f(x)f(y)$ [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate: Is there a name for such kind of function? The question is: is there a nice characterization of all nonnegative functions $f:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ such that ...

What can we say about functions satisfying $f(a + b) = f(a)f(b)$ for all $a,b\in \mathbb{R}$? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate: Is there a name for such kind of function? I am investigating functions satisfying the exponentiation identity $f(a + b) = f(a)f(b)$ for all $a,b\in \Bbb R$. This is ...
Is $f(x)f(y)=f(x+y)$ enough to determin $f$? [duplicate]
I had a discussion with a friend and there it came up the question whether $f(x)f(y)=f(x+y)$, $f(0)=1$ and the existence of $f'(x)$ implies that $f(x)=\exp(a x)$. This seems very reasonable but I ...
