Systems of Non Linear Equations

  • #1
Hey guys,

For my assignment, I have choose any engineering or science problem which requires the solution of at least three nonlinear simultaneous equations, and code it into Matlab.

The problem is that I cannot find a simple real world problem that needs a nonlinear system of equations.

Do you guys have any ideas?

Thanks

Determining a ship's postion using LORAN (google on that) involves finding the intersection of two hyperbolas and so solving two quadratic equations.
