I'm a retired college math teacher. I use Mathematica since version 2.2 and begun TeX with emTeX about 1990. Other languages I use are C, Perl, bash ...

@Artes Ok that is what we call a "weak" monotonic function.

comment How to find the smallest root
I'm a bit confused. For a monotonic, continuous, differentiable function F with supremum c all values F[t] are less then c. Or am I missing something? Could you show the definition of F?

comment Solving complex equations
I think WRI has thougt about the Assumptions option of PowerExoand. I wrote the default were True, but it is Automatic. Look what Power[(a b)^n,Assumptions->#]&/@{Automatic,True} does. $Assumptions defaults to True, so Assumptions->$Assumptions is not appropriate for PowerExpand

Not all functions with Assumtion Option do have the default Assumptions->$Assumptions. AFAIK the only one which doesn't is PowerExpand with default Assumptions->True. So Assuming works only for Functions having the default option Assumptions->$Assumptions.

comment How to format numbers with at least one figure after the decimal point
@murray Yes, but for 0 and 1 I find giving an Integer is fine. In german numbers are never written in the form "27." or ".27" etc, the dot (we use a comma) has alway to be between to digits.
