Hello guys, I am new to Mathematica, however I frequently use another system for my work and use fzero and fsolve functions to solve non-linear equations. I found a Mathematica code that someone volunteerly put on internet for others to use. The code uses FindRoot to solve a set of non-linear equations. I doubt that the original author missed to put some code (or probably file). Being new to Mathematica, I don't have idea how to initialize values to find roots.Let me clear that the roots(probabiity) shall be betweeen 0 and 1. I am giving part of the code, if someone could help me how to initialize values and where in the code (or other file). thanks in advance. -Ahmed (* Start of Mathematica code *)
