I have encountered a problem that I think is general enough that there should be a built-in or standard package function, but I cannot find it. I have a set of algebraic equations in several variables (determined system; #equations = #variables) and a single parameter. I need a function that will numerically solve the system over an interval of values for the parameter and return InterpolatingFunction's. The syntax would be much like NDSolve, with the equations restricted to algebraic only. For simple systems, I can use Solve to get explicit functions in the parameter; but I cannot ensure that the equations in question will have a closed form solution. I have written my own function to do this using NSolve and NestWhileList, but I would certainly rather use a built-in if one exists. Any suggestions?
