expressions involving radicals of unknowns
equations (as for solve), but with radicals
variables (as for solve)
The solve function will solve equations with radicals by using new auxiliary variables and adding new equations.
In some cases the resulting problem will be a system of equations, but in many simple cases radical equations will be handled with transformations and post-processing. For example, the equation x2+x+1=3 is transformed into z4−2⁢z2+z=2 using the substitution x=z2−1.
