Hi. Could somebody show me how to prove that has only one real root for ? All I know so far is that this equation has at least one root because for all real x.

I got a solution that i thought was cool so im posting anyways. Now if . then and should be solutions to the differential eqn but for , we get implies so to have a solution to , x = 0 on the right side, so you get which for a > 1, has only 1 real root, namely
