greetings . i cam across this problem in a research paper i'm writing .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] x_1+x_2+.....+x_m=k_1 [/tex]

[tex] x^2_1+x^2_2+.....+x^2_m=k_2 [/tex]

[tex] .......................[/tex]

[tex] .......................[/tex]

[tex] x^m_1+x^m_2+.....+x^m_m=k_m [/tex]

[itex]k_j[/itex] are constants

in compact form :

[tex]\sum^{m}_{i=1}x^{n}_{i}=k_{n}, n=1,2...m[/tex]

is there a general solution(or algorithm to solve) for [itex] x_i [/itex] !?!?
