Hi All,
I have a big ugly function (please see the attached Mathematica file), of tau (f(tau)). The only parameters there in symbolic form are w and v. I need to take the derivative of this function with respect to tau, set it equal to zero and solve for tau. (Please see g(tau)). But Solve runs for a long time. Part of me says it is not surprising because the function is complicated, but part of me is saying I am doing something wrong which makes Solver run “inefficiently”, as in the past I was able to get a nice compact solution for tau albeit for somewhat less complex looking problems. Can you please help?
Thanks a lot.
Anna.
