A Simple intersection

  1. Sep 4, 2005 #1

    so, I can't solve the embarissing:

    [tex] x^{2} = -\frac{1}{2}ln(x) [/tex]

    , where [tex] x \in ]0, 2] [/tex] or [tex] (0 < x \geq 2 )[/tex]

    any hep would be nice...
    thanx for your pacience!

    Paragon: Equations of this kind can't be solved exactly, i.e the solutions can't be expressed in elementary functions. You can use a numerical method, such as Newton's Method, to approximate the solution.

    Hi, why dont you try with Wright omega function it suits your requirement

    or as suggested by others use LambertW function
