How do I solve simple trigonometric equation 2*cot(2x)=0?

I tried solve, but it gives me one solution, I need solution with n.

Thank you.

With solve(2*cot(x)==0, x, to_poly_solve = 'force') you will get all solutions, where $\pi z_{xx}$ should be interpreted as a multiple integer of $\pi$.

It doesn't work for 2*cot(2x). More precisely, solve(2*cot(2*x)==0, x, to_poly_solve='force') returns empty list.

Pay attention to argument of cotangent: it is 2x: see here See equation solver for correct answer.

Ok! Sorry, I don't know why does it return the empy list. Of course, a change of variables var('x, y') and solve([2*cot(y)==0, y==2*x], x, y, to_poly_solve = 'force') will do the job, but it's awkward..
