During my research in Engineering, I came across this problem.
There is a complex valued function, with the domain as the imaginary axis.
I need to find the value of , at the sequence of points where it is real and draw appropriate conclusions.
There are two scenarios here. (1) Both and are polynomials in . (2) Not case 1.
For case 1 : As we are interested in values of ) at those , where , it is obvious that we are interested ONLY in positive and real solutions to .
My question to the community is this.
If there is no simpler solution, than finding all the roots; then the procedure which I envision would become more computationally complex than a conventional technique that is more than 80 years old.
If case 1 is worth pursuing, then case 2 could be an interesting extension.
