The following file crashes a sun kernel and a mac kernel.
The sun kernel returns a bus error or memory error.
The mac kernel returns a type 1 error.
b1 = Sqrt x (500000 - 375 2^(5/2) x + 2 x^2 - 1000 p +
1.5 Sqrt x p + 0.5 p^2)/(1000 - Sqrt x - p);
a1 = (500000 - 125 2^(7/2) x + x^2 - 2000 p + 2^(3/2) x p +
1.5 p^2)/(1000 - Sqrt x - p);
e = 0.125 b1^2 - 0.125 a1^2;
kk = Simplify[e/.p->190];
Everything works fine until Solve.
Mathematica 2.03 on Sun 4 and Mac IIci. The memory meter on the mac
barely budges before the crash.
