Homework Help: Transcendental equation

  1. Jan 20, 2006 #1
    Hi,

    can somebody see if there is a way to solve this analytically?

    [tex]
    x = \mbox{cotg } x
    [/tex]

    I know it could be solved numerically, but I'm interested in analytical solution only (if it exists, of course).

    Thank you very much.
