You can use NSolve instead of Solve followed by N: NSolve[{x + 1/x == y - 1/y, x^2 + 1/x^2 == y^2 - 1/y^2}] {{x -> -0.353553 - 0.935414 I, y -> 0.707107}, {x -> -0.353553 + 0.935414 I, y -> 0.707107}, {x -> 0.353553 - 0.935414 I, y -> -0.707107}, {x -> 0.353553 + 0.935414 I, y -> -0.707107}} Or, you can use FullSimplify instead of Simplify: ...

Thank you Xminer for a hint. The solution is this: {{PDF[ DiscreteMarkovProcess[1, P][Infinity], 1],PDF[ DiscreteMarkovProcess[1,P][Infinity], 2], ...}} // MatrixForm where P is Markov transition matrix and the second PDF argument is the value of Boole.

A (much slower) procedural method. First we find the number of digits of 123...(n-1)n. numlength[n_] := With[ {pow = Floor@N@Log10[n]}, Range[pow].(9*10^Range[0, pow - 1]) + (pow + 1) (n - 10^pow + 1) ] Here pow = Floor@N@Log10[n] gives the order of magnitude (OoM) of n, Range[pow] and (pow + 1) gives the number of digits in each OoM and the last OoM, ...

The number you are constructing is related to the base 10 Champernowne constant, except that the Champernowne is a real number that starts with 0.123... while your "number" is an integer with an infinite number of digits. In Mathematica, the Champernowne constant in base 10 is given by ChampernowneNumber[]. To get the 10,000 digit, just use RealDigits: ...

If your ultimate goal is implementation of Romberg Integration Method, here is straightforward way to do it usingTable ClearAll["Global*"] f[x_] := 1/x romberg[a_, b_, n_] := Module[{}, h[j_] := (b - a)/2^j; R[0, 0] := h (f[a] + f[b]); R[j_, 0] := 1/2 R[j - 1, 0] + h[j] \!$$\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]$$, $$i = 1$$, SuperscriptBox[$$2$$, \(j - ...

Update: an alternative approach using FoldList: nla = FoldList[Function[{x, y}, ((4 y - x)/3)] @@@ Partition[#, 2, 1] &, T, Range[Length[T] - 1]]; TeXForm @ Grid[Flatten /@ PadLeft[nla]] \$\begin{array}{ccccc} 0.75 & 0.708333 & 0.697024 & 0.694122 & 0.693391 \\ 0 & 0.694444 & 0.693254 & 0.693155 & 0.693148 \\ 0 &...

This is a precedence issue. "fa" -> (# + 1/2) & is interpreted as ( "fa" -> (# + 1/2) ) &. Write "fa" -> ( (# + 1/2) & ) instead.

Maybe you can use the fact that TraditionalForm by default interprets parentheses as function calls: fromCString[s_String] := ReplaceAll[ ToExpression[s, TraditionalForm, Defer], { sqrt -> Sqrt, sqr -> square } ] Then: fromCString["sqrt(sqr(x)+y*z)"] Sqrt[square[x] + y z]

There is a handy package, Notation, built-in to Mathematica. With it, we can do the following: Needs["Notation"] Notation[ParsedBoxWrapper[RowBox[{"sqrt", RowBox[{"(", "x_", ")"}]}]] ⟹ ParsedBoxWrapper[SqrtBox["x_"]]] Notation[ParsedBoxWrapper[RowBox[{"sqr", RowBox[{"(", "x_", ")"}]}]] ⟹ ParsedBoxWrapper[...
