Version 4 of Mathematica contains an implementation of the Cylindrical
Algebraic Decomposition algorithm which allows finding solution sets of
systems of real algebraic equations and inequalities.
For a logical combination of algebraic equations and inequalities ineqs
in
variables vars, Experimental`CylindricalAlgebraicDecomposition[ineqs,
vars],
or InequalitySolve[ineqs, vars] (from Algebra`InequalitySolve` package)
give a full description of the solution set.
In[1]:= ineqs = x^2+y^2+z^2==8 && x-y^3==1 && 1<x+y<z;
In[2]:= <<Algebra`InequalitySolve`
In[3]:= InequalitySolve[ineqs, {x, y, z}]
2 3 4 6
Out[3]= 1 < x < Root[-63 - 14 #1 + 61 #1 + 2 #1 - 14 #1 + #1 & , 2]
&&
3 2 2
> y == Root[1 - x + #1 & , 1] && z == Sqrt[8 - x - y ]
If all you need is just one solution, you can use
Developer`InequalityInstance
In[4]:= Developer`InequalityInstance[ineqs, {x, y, z}]
403 Sqrt[7747041556806895623] 1139192651
Out[4]= {y -> ----, z -> -------------------------, x -> ----------}
