comment What is the solution of cos(x)=x?
How having closed-form expression is related to being transcedential?

more likely a link to Omega constant (fixed point of exponent) and an integral form.

Without another function? What do u mean? The answer by giorgiomugnaini gives an analytic solution.

What's the point of arguing it is trancedential? Fixed point of the exponent is also transcedential, but can be expressed with an integral, for instance.

comment Does a non-trivial solution exist for $f'(x)=f(f(x))$?
@Julien this answer actually better to be on top, because it addresses exactly the issue of solving the equations of the type you proposed and also gives the exact answer in the closed form to your equation. People who follow the link consisting of your caption likely want to see the result.

@Julien I expected you to accept my answer because it gives you the exact answer.

comment Why formal power series are not considered a system of hypercomplex numbers?
LOL who said you composition of functions should be multiplication? What hypercomplex system is built this way?

comment Are there divergent series that cannot be summed up by any method?
@Jack D'Aurizio are u sure it will not be convergent for any methods listed on the wikipedia's page?

comment Divergent Series
The series $\sum_{k=1}^\infty \frac{1}{k}$ can be summed up, for instance using Ramanujan's summation or Cauchy principal value. The sum will be $\gamma$, Euler's constant.

The example of David Mitra satisfies the first two conditions.

@user197137 the definition of derivative is $\lim_{h\to 0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}h$. If it is positive, then there are infinitely many such h that $f(-h) < f(0)< f(h)$
