When $\ln(1+y) = y + o(y)$?

I was reading a proof which utilize the fact that: $\ln(1+y) = y + o(y)$ http://math.stackexchange.com/a/842557/160028 I'm not so sure what is the meaning of $\ln(1+y) = y + o(y)$. When is it ...

The shape of a graph of a function with $n$th-roots?

Not just these type of functions: $$\sqrt[3]{x}=x^{1/3} \;\;\;\text{and} \;\;\; \sqrt[8]{x}=x^{1/8}$$ But also more complicated expressions, like expressions that have $n$th roots inside of ...

On the definition of product of groups

What I'm asking comes from Bosch, Algebra, the first chapter on elementary group theory. 1) Let $X$ be a set and $G$ a group. Then the set $G^X$ of maps from $X$ to $G$ is a group in a natural way, ...

The domain of fractional exponents

Take the following: $$f(x) = x^{6/4}$$ The domain of this function is all real numbers. This function can be simplified to: $$f(x) = x^{3/2}$$ The domain of this function is all real numbers ...

Examples of continuous growth rates greater than exponential

I read on Wikipedia that growth rate of a function can sometimes be greater than exponential. Can you give me some examples of such functions (preferably continuous ones)? Obviously $x^x$ grows ...

Fixed points of $e^z$

How would one find the fixed points of $e^z$, where $z$ is complex (if there are any)? I feel this problem probably has a really obvious answer, and for some reason, I'm just not getting it. Thanks.
I want to find the complex fixpoint $t=b^t$ for real bases $b> \eta = \exp(\exp(-1))$. added remark: I'm aware that there is a solution using branches of the Lambert-W-function, but I've no ...
