 [Maxima-bugs] [ maxima-Bugs-589970 ] Solve of quadratic gives error From: - 2002-08-10 02:56:46 ```Bugs item #589970, was opened at 2002-08-02 01:53 You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=589970&group_id=4933 Category: None Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Stavros Macrakis (macrakis) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) >Summary: Solve of quadratic gives error Initial Comment: eq: (4*k^2-4)*y^2 + (4-4*k^2)*y + 6*k^2-1 solve(eq,y) gives Quotient by a polynomial of higher degree ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Comment By: Barton Willis (willisb) Date: 2002-08-02 11:10 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=570592 This bug has been fixed. Download solve.lisp from http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/maxima/maxima/src/ and either re-build maxima using this version of solve.lisp or load this version of solve.lisp from a maxima prompt. After that, Maxima should be able to solve your equation.
