11.7 Numerical Solutions

Not all equations can be solved symbolically. The commands in this section use numerical algorithms that can find a solution to a specific instance of an equation to any desired accuracy. Note that the numerical commands are slower than their algebraic cousins; it is a good idea to try a S before resorting to these commands.

(See section 11.8 Curve Fitting, for some other, more specialized, operations on numerical data.)
