I need to solve equation f[x1,x2] for x1 and x2, where I know that x1>0
and x2>0 and are both real.  Solve[f[x1,x2]==0,{x1,x2}] takes a lot of
time to solve and when it does solve it gives me tons of unreal
solutions or repetitive solutions (I have enabled Miscellanous RealOnly
and instead of complex solutions it just gives me Unreal).  I would
like to know how I (1) can restrict the solution set where Mathematica
is trying to find a solution, and (2) show only unique solutions and
totally not showing Unreal ones. FindRoot is great but it is very
dependent on starting values which is not good for me. Thankx, Mukhtar
