 Author Comment/Response Dave 11/21/00 11:40am I'm attempting to use Reduce to find a non-general solution to an equation (mathematica's text-paste from the notebook below). Alternately, there are constraint situations for some variables that can be specified (but I don't know how). My problem is that the calculation always causes an unhandled exception in the Mathematica Kernel. Any help greatly appreciated. -snip- Notebook[{ Cell[BoxData[ \(Reduce[\n\t \((\((a\ Cos[u]\ \((1 + \(\@2\ h \)\/\@\(a\^2 + c\^2 + \((\(-a\^2\) + c\^2)\)\ Cos[2\ v]\))\)\ Sin[v])\) - x)\) == \n\t\t \((\((a\ \(( 1 + \(\@2\ h \)\/\@\(a\^2 + c\^2 + \((\(-a\^2\) + c\^2)\)\ Cos[2\ v]\))\)\ Sin[u]\ Sin[v])\) - y)\) == \n\t\t \((\((c\ Cos[v]\ \((1 + \(\@2\ h \)\/\@\(a\^2 + c\^2 + \((\(-a\^2\) + c\^2)\)\ Cos[2\ v]\))\))\) - z)\), { u, v, h}]\)], ''Input''] }, FrontEndVersion->''Microsoft Windows 3.0'', ScreenRectangle->{{0, 1280}, {0, 968}}, WindowSize->{1009, 904}, WindowMargins->{{0, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}}, Magnification->2 ] URL: ,
