After https://ask.sagemath.org/question/454... I substituted variables with numbers (in RIF format) so that sage might have an easier time solving for d_k. I got this:

0 == -v_ges + 1/(sqrt(4*d_k^2 + 0.57?)*d_k*((3.?e-11)/(d_k - 0.1?) + 1.?e-8)) - 1/(sqrt(4*d_k^2 + 0.0625000000000000)*d_k*((3.?e-11)/(d_k - 0.1?) + 1.?e-8)) + 3.7?e9

But now, when I try to solve the above for d_k, I get this long traceback, which is above my sage skills. How can I solve this? The worksheet is https://cocalc.com/share/f7766c5e-2f4...

*** WARNING: Code contains possible implicit multiplication    ***
*** Check if any of [ 5e, 5e ] need a "*" sign for multiplication, e.g. 5x should be 5*x ! ***

Apparently substituting variables with RIF numbers does not give Sage an easier time solving equations.

The trouble is that Sage uses Maxima for solving equations (by default).

The traceback shows that Sage has a problem converting RIF numbers into Maxima objects.

Here is a more self-contained example:

sage: var('x')
sage: solve(x + RIF(0.999,1.001) == 0, x)

I reported this as trac ticket #27314.
