Hi,

I have the following equation:

B = (k*a*Exp[-t*(B/N)*T/beta] - N)/(a*Exp[-t*(B/N)*T/beta])

Using Mathematica, I tried to solve it for B. Mathematica returned the following solution:

B = k-(N*beta*ProductLog[(E^((k*t*T)/(N*beta))*t*T)/(a*beta)])/(t*T)

What that means? What is ProductLog? How can I have a closed-form expression of that?

Thanks a lot,

Estêvão
