 Author Comment/Response Sven de Man 09/22/05 06:20am Hello, I try to solve complex equations, but it doesn's work. I have isolated the problem: In: Solve[Conjugate[x]==I,x] is not solved by Mathematica, although the answer is of course x=-I. The error message I get is that the Conjugate(-1), the inverse of conjugate, is used, and it seems to be missing. However, In: Conjugate[Conjugate[x]] gives Out: x (eq 1) And In: Conjugate[I] Out: -I So, if you take the complex conjugate of the equation the answer is already there. The main problem is thus that the inverse function of Conjugate is the Conjugate function according to eq 1 (isn't it?), but Solve cannot use this inverse function. Has someone a good suggestion?
