Solution:
Let us assume a solution of the original differential equation as:
y=e^{ax}
Hence the given differential equation becomes:
a^{2}e^{ax}+ae^{2ax}=0 \Rightarrow e^{ax}=-a \Rightarrow y=\frac{logy}{x} \Rightarrow y^{1/y}=e^{x}

Thanks & Regards

Value of a for which the given equation logx/loga = a^a^x has one solution..
 
 
Log x/log a= a^a^x x = a^a^a^x There is one possible solution when a= 1 Hence x = 1^x x=1 is the solution... Thanks Bharat Bajaj Askiitians faculty
