I wanted to know all the solutions of f = (-z - 1)^d - (-z^d - 1)==0, where d=54.
I did the following:
d = 54; f = (-z - 1)^d - (-z^d - 1);
sol = NSolve[f == 0,z];
a = z /. sol;
So a is a set of solutions.
If I compute
f /. z -> a[] // N
It returns a number very close to zero. This is natural.
But if I compute
f /. (z -> a[]) // N
12.0047 + 14.7528 I
I cannot say a[] is a solution of f=0.
Many other elements in the solution set a does not seem to satisfy the equation.
Only the last few terms in a are satisfactory enough as solutions.
Is the degree too high?
