Roots

FilledSmallSquareRoots[lhs==rhs, var] yields a disjunction of equations which represent the roots of a polynomial equation.

FilledSmallSquareRoots uses Factor and Decompose in trying to find roots.

FilledSmallSquare You can find numerical values of the roots by applying N.

FilledSmallSquareRoots can take the following options:

FilledSmallSquareRoots is generated when Solve and related functions cannot produce explicit solutions. Options are often given in such cases.

FilledSmallSquareRoots gives several identical equations when roots with multiplicity greater than one occur.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 1.5.7 and Section 3.4.1.

FilledSmallSquare See also: Solve, NSolve, FindRoot, ToRules, Root, Factor, Decompose, InterpolatingPolynomial.
