 Author Comment/Response Hiranya Peiris 02/16/02 8:25pm Hi, Couls someone please help me with this question: I have a large list of simultaneous algebraic equations to be solved. I have tried using Solve and Reduce, and they give a list of all possible sets of solutions. However, there is only one correct solution (one in which a certain parameter is positive definite). Call this parameter k - I have succesfully used Solve like this: Solve{{eq1,eq2,...eqn,k!=0},vars] works fine. But I really want something like: Solve[{eq1,eq2,...eqn,k>0},vars] Mathematica gives no answer to this. How can one get around this problem? Thanks Hiranya URL: ,
