comment Solution to $y = x^x (1-x)^{(1-x)}$ for $x$
Here, I did it again. I wrote "to" instead of "too" and I corrected the wrong one. And now it's to late to fix it. I hate being me. :-)

comment Solution to $y = x^x (1-x)^{(1-x)}$ for $x$
@DanielLichtblau :-) Er... that is just an addition to my comment above. When I realized I missed a bit it was to late too edit it... so I had to make a new comment. The ellipses are just 'cut&paste' indicators. Unless you are referring to the above closing ellipses. In that case there's no continuation. All I meant is that once one has seen that "L to gun" gesture, inverse functions are no longer a mistery... (<--- here we go again)

...in 0-1 AND it's not monotonic, SO...

People here are too fast in killing threads. Relax folks, give a little leeway to new users and see what happens... It's not like virginity in the Middle Ages.

Actually, if you draw the function y[x] you can see that it has real values for x in 0-1, so the inverse function, restricted to reals, has two branches. One is the one you showed, the other one is the mirror of that with respect with the translated y axis at x=1/2. (It's like a "C"). And you can see that by exchanging the x and y axis in the plot of y[x] (there's a simple gesture that changes an "L" made with index and thumb into a "gun" that shows the required transformation to get the inverse of any plot, once one has seen that...)

comment Is FullGraphics an abandoned function? Is there an alternative?
@Mr.Wizard I updated the wiki contribution to emphasize the difference between that post and yours, and added a link to it and to WRI list of incompatible changes (which I swear was not there when I started the wiki :-) ). I do not see duplicates.

When you find an answer, you might want to add a post in the mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/43631/… thread.
