Mathematica redundant transcandental equations

  1. May 27, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If you define x to be real,

    x Esc el Esc Reals

    Then right
    Conjugate[Exp[[- Esc ii Esc * x ]]]

    Mathematica will output
    [Exp[Esc ii Esc * Conjugate[x]]]

    How do I make it so it doesn't write Conjugate[x] and just x?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Element[x,Reals] and Esc el Esc work but does anyone know the ordering?

    So say if I had

    4 * Sin[x*t]^2 * Sin[t*sqrt(4+x^2)]^2 == 0

    Writing Solve[{4 * Sin[x*t]^2 * Sin[t*sqrt(4+x^2)]^2 == 0,another similiar expression with negatives say,}{x,t}]

    This command works with polynomials but not so subtle with trig functions, does anyone know what I can do to solve for x and t simultaneously?
    Would give me an error, inconsistent or redundant transcandental equation.
