# MaxExtraConditions

MaxExtraConditions
is an option to Solve and related functions that specifies how many extra equational conditions on continuous parameters to allow in solutions that are given.

## DetailsDetails

• Solve gives generic solutions only. Solutions that are valid only when continuous parameters satisfy equations are removed. Additional solutions can be obtained by using nondefault settings for MaxExtraConditions.
• The following settings can be used:
•  0 (None) include solutions that require no equations on continuous parameters k include solutions that require up to k equations on continuous parameters Infinity include all solutions All include all solutions and all conditions Automatic include solutions that require the minimal number of equations on continuous parameters
• With the setting , all conditions are included. Other settings will exclude inequations and NotElement conditions on continuous parameters.

This system has no generic solutions:

 Out[1]=

This gives solutions that require the minimal number of equational conditions:

 Out[2]=

This gives solutions with arbitrary conditions on parameters:

 Out[3]=

You can specify the maximal number of equations on parameters to allow:
