Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Consider the system of nonlinear algebraic equations: and , where you can vary and .[more]
This Demonstration finds all roots of this system in the domain using Seader's approach  and the arc length continuation technique.
The problem considered is described as follows: (the function was first proposed in ), , and (i.e., the auxiliary equation). Using the built-in Mathematica function WhenEvent all roots of the system are readily obtained when . A list of all roots is provided.[less]
