Transcendental Function

  1. Apr 5, 2006 #1
    Hi All,

    I need help to either ( in page 5 )
    1) solve equation 30
    2) write a program to tabulate the results in a chart
    3) understand how to read table 1

    regards,
    profionus

    function

    BTW,

    1) what is a transendencal function anyway
    2) what is the normal method to solve it

    thanks

    There's no equation in #30. It's just the definition of a function. Techincally any non polynomial function is a transcendental one.

    Thanks Daniel,

    May I know how you read the table 1.

    If I had a value B which isnt on the graph, how do I extrapolate for the values of the function G(B,e)

    regards,

    I dunno, it's a lot more difficult, since you got a function of 2 variables, B & xi. Maybe you can fix xi to a certain value (one which is considered in the table) and then try to interpolate for an arbitrary value of B inside the intervals.

    Daniel.

    About transcendental functions: those polynomial functions must have algebraic numbers as coefficients. Thus, a polynomial function with transcendental coefficients is a transcendental function.

    Daniel.
