I have a complex nonlinear equation, f[z,p] = 0, that I want
to solve for complex z=x + I*y, as a function of real parameter p
(p varies from 0.5 to 1.5). This describes the problem (in MMA):
g[z_] := I Sqrt[Pi] Exp[-z^2] ( 1 + Erf[I z] )
f[z_,p_] := z^2 - 1 - 0.348 * g[3.87*(p-1)/(p*z)] / (z * p^2)
This equation has multiple solutions. I want to plot a few (2 or 3)
branches on the same plot, i.e., I want to plot x versus p in one plot
and y versus p in another plot. Each branch should use a different
color for plotting.
I haven't been able to find a concise way of doing this, with either
Maple or Mathematica. I got lost in the bookkeeping of the solutions.
I know how to solve it, I just can't find a clean way to display
the results.
Any help is appreciated (and you don't even have to use the function
above).
Thanks.
