Hi!
i am using Mathematica 4.
i tried to solve the following problem for L

\!\(Solve[\[Alpha]\ \ P\ L\^\(\[Alpha] - 1\)\ K\_t\ \((N\_t\ /\
P\ L^\[Alpha])\) \((\(-\ 1\)\ + \
e\^\(\((T\ - \ t)\)\ P\ L^\[Alpha]\))\)\ + \ \
\[Beta]\ \ \[Phi]\ \((S - L)\)\^\(\[Alpha] - 1\)\ N\_t\ \((K\_t\ /\ \((\[Phi]\
\ \((S\ - \ L)\)^\[Beta])\))\) \((\(-\ 1\)\ + \
e\^\(\((T\ - \ t)\)\ \[Phi]\ \((S\ - \ \ L)\)^\[Beta]\))\) == \
\ 0\ , \ L]\)


and got the output with a suggestion as follows

Solve::"tdep": "The equations appear to involve the variables to be solved \
for in an essentially non-algebraic way."
\!\(Solve[\((\(-1\) +
e\^\(L\^\[Alpha]\ P\ \((\(-t\) + T)\)\))\)\ L\^\(\(-1\) + 2\ \
\[Alpha]\)\ \[Alpha]\ K\_t\ N\_t + \((\(-1\) +
e\^\(\((\(-L\) + S)\)\^\[Beta]\ \((\(-t\) + T)\)\ \[Phi]\))\)\ \
\((\(-L\) + S)\)\^\(\(-1\) + \[Alpha] - \[Beta]\)\ \[Beta]\ K\_t\ N\_t == 0,
L]\)


please help me to solve this.
