 Author Comment/Response Raja Kountanya 12/13/99 09:01am Somehow Mathematica is not able to solve a function which involves a ''Which'' function. That is, the function is defined differently in different regions. So a simple NSolve or a FindRoot should have worked.But it gives this warning CompiledFunction::''cfr'': ''Cannot use compiled code; Argument \!\(theta\) at position \!\(1\) \ should be a machine-size real number.'' Solve::''dinv'': ''The expression \!\(Which[\(\(theta < \(-1.74532925199432948`\)\), \ \(\\[LeftSkeleton] 4 \\[RightSkeleton]\), \(\*StyleBox[\''20.`\'', \ Rule[PrintPrecision, 2], Rule[StyleBoxAutoDelete, True]]\\ \ \(Sin[theta]\)\)\)]\) involves unknowns in more than one argument, so inverse \ functions cannot be used.'' and does not solve the equation. Is there any rule about the kind of equations Mathematica can solve? Thanks a lot, I am very thankful for the advice which I get in this forum from time to time. Raja URL: ,
