NSolve
(Built-in Mathematica Symbol) NSolve[expr, vars] attempts to find numerical approximations to the solutions of the system expr of equations or inequalities for the variables vars. NSolve[expr, vars, ...
When Solve cannot find solutions in terms of radicals to polynomial equations, it returns a symbolic form of the result in terms of Root objects. You can get numerical ...
Numerical root finding. NSolve gives you numerical approximations to all the roots of a polynomial equation. You can also use NSolve to solve sets of simultaneous equations ...
One of the important features of Mathematica is its ability to give you exact, symbolic, results for computations. There are, however, computations where it is just ...
The main equations that Solve and related Mathematica functions deal with are polynomial equations. It is easy to solve a linear equation in x. One can also solve quadratic ...
OrderStarInterpolation is an option to OrderStarPlot that specifies whether interpolation points of an approximant to a function should be displayed.
NRoots
(Built-in Mathematica Symbol) NRoots[lhs == rhs, var] yields a disjunction of equations which represent numerical approximations to the roots of a polynomial equation.
OrderStarPoles is an option to OrderStarPlot that specifies whether poles of an approximant and the function to be approximated should be displayed.
OrderStarZeros is an option to OrderStarPlot that specifies whether zeros of an approximant and the function to be approximated should be displayed.
Packed into functions like Solve and Reduce are a wealth of sophisticated algorithms, many created specifically for Mathematica. Routinely handling both dense and sparse ...
