Maybe the following hypergeometric expressions for x^x are useful:
x^x = 1F0( [-x] , [], -x + 1 )
equivalently
(1+x)^(1+x) = 1F0( [-1-x] , [] , -x )
Also
(1+x)^(1+x) = 1/(1 + 2*x) * 2F1( [-x-2, x+3] , [x+2] , -x )
Taken from my "matters Computational", section 36.5, "The function x^x"
Cf. A005727
Of course there is always
Lisa Lorentzen, Haakon Waadeland:
Continued Fractions and Applications,
North-Holland, (1992)
Not sure which of the "massive Russian formula tomes"
are to be recommend here (anyone?).
