Proposition: Functional Equation of the Exponential Function of General Base (Revised)
Let \(f:\mathbb R\to \mathbb R\) be any continuous real function that obeys the functional equation
\[f(x+y)=f(x)\cdot f(y)\]
for all \(x,y\in\mathbb R\). Then there are two possible cases:
 either \(f\) is constant and equals \(0\), formally \(f(x)=0\) for all \(x\in\mathbb R\), or
 \(f\) equals the exponential function of general base \(f(x)=\exp_a(x)\) for all \(x\in\ \mathbb R\) for the base \(a:=f(1) > 0 \).
