Dear members of the mathgroup email group,
I have serious difficulties in solving the following problem in Mathematica
(v.6) and would very appreciate it if anyone could give me a helping hand with
that.
To start with, I have a list of data points {{x[[i]],y[[i]]}}.
Also, I have the function W. W consists of two single functions f[r] and g[r,
x, a]:
f[r_] = r^2+r+2/(r^2+r)
g[r_, x_, a_] = Exp[a*Exp[-x*r]]
W := NIntegrate[f[r]*g[r, x, a], {r, 0.1, 100}]
What I have given for every pair of data is W[x[[i]]] == y[[i]] (see the list
of data points). What I do not have is the corresponding value of a[[i]].
So, I want to use FindRoot to give me the value of a[[i]] for each of my data
pairs {x[[i]],y[[i]]}.
Although I have found many examples quite similar to this problem, I have been
unable to adjust those to work in my case.
I would be very grateful if somebody could provide me with the proper syntax
for this.
Thanks very much in advance,
Chris
