Hi Simon, I used the free form input in that form: "inverse function of f(x)=x^2", so I essentially used Wolfram alpha My point or rather my question was however, why Mathematica returns a solution where there should be none, as to my understanding f(x)=x^2 cannot be inverted. But then my understanding is quite limited, so please bear with me if this is just a lapse of knowledge on my part :-) Regards -- Berthold Hamburger - Cellist/Spain http://www.artinso.com | http://www.astronomy.artinso.com | http://www.artemis.artinso.com Sent from my Android Galaxy tab with Kaiten Mail.
