The derivative of that function is

y ' = (ln x + 1)*x^x

I will provide a website with the derivation separately.

I don't know what you mean by the "turning point of the function y-x^x". That function would always be zero. Do you mean the minimum of the function y = x^x?

See this website for how to differentiate the function:
