 Author Comment/Response Enrico 04/21/07 10:17am Hi!! I've just started with math, so I apologize in advance if my question is too trivial. Given a polynomial equation in one variable, I asked Mathematica for its numerical roots by NSolve operator. I'd like to plot corresponding zeroes in a straithforward way, is it possible? The strategy I've tried to pursue can be summerized as follows: rr = z_Complex -> {Re[z], Im[z]}; values=NSolve[poly==0,x], %/.rr, x./% list=% At this step, what I get for is a table having the following structure: list={{a,b},{c,d},e,....} ---a,b,c,d,e being real, where of course "{a,b}" and "e" have replaced corresponding zeroes a+ib and e --- Now, in order to use the well-known ListPlot command I need to transform e-like quantities in a the corresponding pair {e,0} , could you help me? ps. why doesn't "rr" work for real numbers as well?? Thanks a lot Enr URL: ,
