In a recent post http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/33a3c47e98447c78/d4e48ee36db1c257?hl=en#d4e48ee36db1c257 I encountered the following commands Solve[(y + b) (y + c) == (a^4 + y^2 + 3) + O[y]^3, {b, c}] Solve[(a^2 + a c + b)(a^2 + a e + d) == (a^4 + y^2 + 3) + O[a]^5, {b, c, d, e}] I can't find anywhere documentation for this setting of Solve. In what technique is based this solution? Thanks a lot.
