For instance, an input like all_complex_roots(1,4) would have the expected output [1,-1,I,-I] or some such. Does such a command exist? I've seen workarounds, like finding all complex roots of the polynomial $X^4-1$, but is there something direct? 2015-09-04 17:53:37 +0200 received badge ● Scholar (source) 2015-09-03 16:29:52 +0200 asked a question Finding solutions as numerical values rather than equations The output of solve() returns equations. What's the easiest way to "unwrap" these to get numerical values? For instance, solve(x^2-4==0,x) returns [x==-2, x==2]. I'd like to define the associated list [-2,2].
