Function: greatestroot - find floating-point approximation to greatest root of an equation or expression on a real interval.
Calling sequence:
greatestroot( expr, x = a .. b);
Parameters:
expr - the equation or expression, involving one variable
x - the variable (a name)
a, b - endpoints of the interval (real constants).
Description:
Examples:
> greatestroot( tan(sin(x))=1, x = 0 .. 2*Pi );
> greatestroot((x-Pi)^2, x = 0 .. 4);
> greatestroot(sin(x) + x^2, x = -infinity .. infinity);
> greatestroot(abs(sin(x)+x) = 1, x = -2 .. 2);
